CFIA Suspends Operations at Beking Poultry Farm (#0-66)

Effective September 26, 2013, the registration of Beking Poultry Farm was reinstated and the company was allowed to resume operations under ongoing inspection by the CFIA.

July 9, 2013 (Ottawa): The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has suspended the registration of Beking Poultry Farm (#0-66) effective July 9, 2013. The establishment is a federally registered shell egg producer in Oxford Station, Ontario.

There is no recall associated with this suspension. The registration was suspended because the operator was not meeting the standards for the Canada A grade as stated in the Egg Regulations. Specifically, CFIA inspectors consistently discovered a large number of cracks in eggs from this facility.

The operator has failed to implement proper corrective actions to effectively resolve the issue.

Beking Poultry Farm (#0-66) will not be able to resume operations under federal jurisdiction until they have fully implemented the necessary corrective actions and the CFIA is confident that the required standards can be consistently maintained.

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 and registrations of federally registered establishments or companies can be suspended or cancelled for failing to comply with relevant CFIA Acts and Regulations.
