March 21, 2011, Ottawa – The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is now publishing information about its compliance and enforcement activities being taken to protect the safety of the Canadian food, animal and plant supply.

As of March 16, the Government of Canada began publishing information about: federally registered food establishments whose licenses have been suspended, cancelled or reinstated; food imports that have been refused entry into Canada, and; notices of violations with warning and penalties, including identifying repeat offenders of animal transportation regulations.

“Food safety is a top priority of the Government of Canada and we are delivering that transparency around what we are doing to protect Canadian families,” said Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz. “This will give our inspectors another tool in the toolbox to shine the light of transparency on repeat offenders and companies that try and import unsafe food.”
