Summary of the CFIA’s investigation into XL Foods

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has completed its in-depth review of the food safety controls at the XL Foods Inc. facility where positive E. coli O157:H7 findings have led to a voluntary recall of more than 250 products. The CFIA continues to identify additional products affected by this recall and conduct effectiveness checks to verify that affected product has been removed from the marketplace. 

The in-depth review focused on the plant's preventative control measures, food-safety policies and procedures, laboratory methodology, and equipment and quality systems. While the review did not identify one single factor that would lead to E. coli O157:H7 contamination, the combination of several deficiencies could have played a role.

By themselves, each of these findings would not typically signal an immediate concern during the course of normal inspection activities. The CFIA has identified a number of issues with regards to the establishment’s preventative control plan. The detection of E. coli in slaughter facilities is not uncommon, and plants are expected to have adequate measures in place to monitor higher than normal detection rates and modify control measures accordingly.

This trend analysis was not always conducted consistently at the facility. In addition, deviations were noted from the company’s documented E. coli O157:H7 control measures and sampling and testing procedures. The company was unable to demonstrate through its documentation that it regularly reviewed or made necessary updates to its control plan for the facility. XL Foods Inc. has developed a response plan.

The CFIA has accepted the company’s plan and will monitor corrective actions to verify that they have been implemented effectively. As of September 24, 2012, the CFIA has issued seven alerts identifying products that are affected by this recall. To date, more than 250 products have been affected by this recall. The CFIA continues to collect information from suppliers, distributors and retailers, so there is a possibility that additional products could be identified and further expansions could be issued. The CFIA continues to work with its provincial and federal public health counterparts. To date, health authorities have not established a link between this recall and any illnesses.

Fresh Express Announces Limited-in-Scope Recall of Expired 9 oz. Leafy Green Romaine Salad Due to Possible Health Risk

Fresh Express Incorporated is voluntarily recalling a limited quantity of 9 oz. Leafy Green Romaine Salad with the expired Use-by Date of September 16 as a precaution in an unlikely event that consumers may still have the expired salad in their refrigerators.

Department of Agriculture random sample testing program. Because it is beyond the expiration date, the salad is no longer available for sale in stores. No illnesses are reported in association with the product recall. No consumer complaints have been received about the salad. No other Fresh Express products are being recalled. The recall notification is being issued out of an abundance of caution in keeping with the company’s commitment to protect the public health.

Any new information and all product and distribution information to date, can be found on the CFIA website at www.inspection.gc.ca/recalls. This voluntary recall initiated by the company follows positive test results for E. coli O157:H7 in product shipped from this facility.

The Food Standards Agency is advising people travelling to, or recently returned from, the Czech Republic to steer clear of locally-produced hard spirits.

A further 36 people have been admitted to hospital after drinking the spirits. The spirits include vodka and rum, marketed as ‘hard liquor’, containing over 20% alcohol.
