August 8, 2013 (Ottawa): The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has cancelled the registration of Establishment 90, Can-Pacific Farms Inc., effective August 1, 2013. The establishment is a seasonal processor of frozen blueberries located in Surrey, BC.

The company has failed to provide the CFIA with an acceptable corrective action plan to address issues concerning sanitation, cleanliness, storage, and unavailable or inaccurate documentation. As a result, the Agency has cancelled the company's registration.

The company's registration was suspended on April 26, 2013 due to non-compliance with the Processed Products Regulations (PPR).

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