May 07, 2013, Ottawa: The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has suspended the licence to produce poultry products for Establishment 449, AKME Poultry, Butter & Eggs Distributors Inc., effective May 6, 2013. The company is located in Saint-Eustache, Quebec.
The CFIA has determined that adequate controls for food safety are not being reliably implemented in the facility on a consistent basis. The company has failed to correct deficiencies previously identified through CFIA inspections including corrective action requests related to general hygiene requirements.
AKME Poultry, Butter & Eggs Distributors Inc., will not be able to resume operations until they have fully implemented the necessary corrective actions and the CFIA is fully confident in the plant’s capacity to effectively manage food safety risks.
The safety of consumers is the CFIA‘s top priority and the Agency will work diligently to ensure there is no potential risk to consumers. Additional information will be provided as soon as it becomes available.
