New Canadian Food Safety Rules go into effect on January 15, 2019
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), announced the implementation of the Safe Food for Canadian Regulations (SFCR) effective as of January 15, 2019, that will focus on prevention and allowing for faster removal of unsafe food from the marketplace. The new regulations cover a wide range of food safety-related efforts including licensing, labeling standards, rules enforcement, and new recall protocols. These regulations also feature traceability requirements designed to help Canadian food companies that import or send food between Canadian territories track the origins of the products they manage. Other issues covered by SFCR include packaging, organic products, excluded products, and inspection standards. @ http://inspection.gc.ca/food/eng/1299092387033/1299093490225
