CFIA Advises Establishment 4233, Red Cove of Non-Renewal of Registration

Effective April 14, 2014, Establishment 4233, Red Cove, was allowed to resume operations under ongoing inspection by the CFIA.

November 5, 2013, Ottawa: The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has suspended the licence of Establishment 4233, Red Cove, effective November 1st, 2013. The establishment is located in Cape Wolfe, PEI and is registered to process ready to eat, fresh frozen and molluscan shellfish products.

The CFIA has determined that adequate controls for food safety are not being reliably implemented in the facility on a consistent basis. All products currently at this plant that were produced under these inadequate conditions are under CFIA detention and control.

There are currently no food safety issues associated with this suspension and no product is being recalled at this time. However, the CFIA is continuing its investigation. Should a recall be required, the CFIA will issue a Food Recall Warning.

The company will not be able to resume operations until the necessary corrective actions have been implemented and the CFIA is fully confident in the plant's capacity to effectively manage food safety risks.

The CFIA safeguards food, animals and plants which enhances the health and well-being of Canada's people, environment and economy and helps maintain access to international markets. Licences and registrations of registered establishments or companies can be suspended or cancelled for failing to comply with relevant CFIA Acts and Regulations.
