The CFIA auditors reviewed USDA-FSIS Enforcement Controls. These controls included the enforcement of inspection requirements and the testing programs for Salmonella spp, Escherichia coli 0157:H7, Listeria monocytogenes and species verification.

USDA-FSIS took the necessary enforcement actions when non-compliances were identified during on-site activities conducted during this audit. However, the number of similar shortcomings in different establishments is an observation that is important to the overall assessment of government controls, discussed under point 5 above.
