Effective December 31, 2015, Establishment 2563, Ichiboshi L. P. C. Ltd. was granted federal registration and the company was allowed to resume operations under ongoing inspection by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).

July 8, 2015, Ottawa: The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has revoked the federal registration of Establishment 2563, Ichiboshi L. P. C. Ltd., effective July 8, 2015. Located in Caraquet, New Brunswick, Ichiboshi L. P. C. Ltd. processes ready to eat frozen crab.

In June 2015, the CFIA had determined that adequate controls for food safety were not being reliably implemented in the facility on a consistent basis, as required by the Fish Inspection Regulations. The company had failed to correct deficiencies previously identified through CFIA inspections, which resulted in the suspension of its license to operate on June 19, 2015.

The company was unable to provide the CFIA with an acceptable corrective action plan to address the deficiencies as part of the suspension. As a result, on July 8, 2015, the CFIA revoked the registration of Ichiboshi L. P. C. Ltd.

The establishment, at any time, can request reinstatement of their registration and would need to comply with the Fish Inspection Regulations by:

  • Developing a Quality Management Program (QMP). The QMP Plan must include a Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) Plan.
  • Registering the processing facility with the CFIA by properly completing an application form and paying a specified fee. A Certificate of Registration can only be provided once a QMP Plan has been completed and accepted by the CFIA.
  • Ensuring the facility is in compliance with Schedule I of the Fish Inspection Regulations. Facility compliance will be verified by CFIA prior to issuance of a Certificate of Registration.

Licenses and registrations of federally registered establishments or companies can be suspended or cancelled for failure to comply with relevant CFIA Acts and Regulations. The CFIA publishes a list of suspensions and cancellations on its web site.
