CFIA Suspends Operations at Beking Poultry Farm

15 July 2013, at 12:33pm

CANADA - The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has suspended the registration of Beking Poultry Farm.

The farm is a federally registered shell egg producer in Oxford Station, Ontario.

There is no recall associated with this suspension.

The registration was suspended because the operator was not meeting the standards for the Canada A grade as stated in the Egg Regulations. Specifically, CFIA inspectors consistently discovered a large number of cracks in eggs from this facility.

The operator has failed to implement proper corrective actions to effectively resolve the issue.

Beking Poultry Farm will not be able to resume operations under federal jurisdiction until they have fully implemented the necessary corrective actions and the CFIA is confident that the required standards can be consistently maintained.
