CFIA suspends the Safe Food for Canadians licence of Ryding-Regency Meat Packers LTD., for non-compliances related to control measures

September 20, 2019 (updated September 24), Ottawa: The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has suspended the Safe Food for Canadians (SFC) licence #3WYHVFPD (Est. 99) of Ryding-Regency Meat Packers LTD. (also doing business as Tri-Pet Holdings Incorporated), a beef slaughter and processing establishment located in Toronto, Ontario, effective September 17, 2019.

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

CFIA suspended the licence # 3WYHVFPD because Ryding-Regency Meat Packers LTD. failed to implement effective control measures in accordance with Part 4 of the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations (SFCR).

CFIA is conducting a food safety investigation. There are food recalls associated with the food safety investigation.

If additional products are recalled, CFIA will notify the public by posting recall information on our website and issuing Public Food Recall Warnings when required.

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.

CFIA publishes SFC licence suspensions and cancellations on its website.
