CFIA suspends the Safe Food for Canadians licence of Cami International Poultry Limited for non-compliances related to slaughter

October 9, 2019, Ottawa: The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has suspended the Safe Food for Canadians (SFC) licence # 3RWXY8FD (Est. 658) of Cami International Poultry Limited, a poultry slaughter establishment located in Welland, Ontario, effective October 4, 2019.

While the suspension is in effect, the licence holder may not conduct any activity for which SFC licence # 3RWXY8FD was issued.

CFIA suspended this licence because the company failed to comply with humane treatment provisions related to the slaughter of poultry under Part 6 of the SFCR.

There is no food recall associated with this suspension.

Licence holders are responsible for ensuring that they comply with Canada's food laws. CFIA is committed to enforcing those laws.

Safe Food for Canadians licences can be suspended:

  • for failure to comply with the Safe Food for Canadians Act, the Food and Drugs Act and their related regulations
  • for default of payment of any fee related to the licence
  • if risk of injury to the public may result from continuing to conduct the licensed activity

The licence suspension will be lifted if CFIA determines that corrective measures have been taken. If corrective action is not taken within 90 days after suspension, CFIA may cancel the licence. CFIA may also cancel the licence on other grounds set out in section 39 of the SFCR. Cancellation can occur after the licence holder has been notified of the grounds for cancellation and provided with an opportunity to be heard.
