Labelling requirements for processed egg products
When traded interprovincially or exported, the inspection legend set out in Figure 1 of Schedule 2 of the SFCR must appear on the label of prepackaged processed egg products, provided the conditions set out in section 181 of the SFCR are met, including the standards set out in the Canadian Standards of Identity, Volume 2 – Processed Egg Products [258(a), SFCR]. Refer to Inspection marks for more information on inspection legends.
The inspection legend, which is illustrated below, consists of the outline of a circle containing a maple leaf with the word Canada included within the maple leaf, and the number identifying the licence holder's establishment, replacing the numbers 00, directly beneath the maple leaf [Figure 1 of Schedule 2, section 183, SFCR].
Please note that until January 14, 2022, the inspection legend set out in Schedule II of the repealed Processed Egg Regulations may continue to be used, as a transitional measure, in lieu of the above [374(3)(b), SFCR]. As of January 15, 2022, the new legend, illustrated above, must be used. It is the responsibility of the regulated party to accurately reproduce the inspection legend set out in Figure 1 of Schedule 2 of the SFCR.
If prepackaged processed egg products are imported, the official inspection mark of the foreign state of origin must be shown on the label [258(b), SFCR].
The inspection legend and the official inspection mark of the foreign state of origin may be shown on any part of the label, except the bottom [245(3), SFCR].
