Dear (Operator's name):

As a registered establishment under Part X of the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Regulations, your facility was subject to a regularly scheduled monitoring visit on (insert date), at which time you were provided with the monitoring inspection report. At the time of the visit, your establishment was on a tightened frequency of inspection level. This letter is to confirm that as a result of the following non-conformities, your establishment is subject to suspension.

On (date), (quantity) of (produce) failed (grade declared) due to: (list of the defects):

  1.  
  2.  
  3.  

When on a tightened frequency of inspection level, when infractions are found in two (2) lots within the same week, suspension action may be initiated. I would be available to meet with you should you wish to discuss the particulars of your non-conformities.

You should be aware that during suspension, you will be obliged to have inspected every load shipped from your warehouse, as per Section 29(2) of the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Regulations. The set inspection fees will be charged. Any lots of produce shipped from your warehouse without requesting and obtaining an inspection from the CFIA will constitute a violation of that section. Compulsory inspections will be required until at least 225,000 kg (495,000 lb) of produce has been shipped without incurring more than one infraction.

As a registered establishment, you are required to meet the provisions of the Canada Agricultural Products Act and the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Regulations. If you have any questions in regard to this letter, please do not hesitate to contact this office.

Yours sincerely,

Name
Regional Program Officer or Area Program Specialist
