The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has finally completed its investigation with an in-depth review of food safety controls at Edmonton-based XL Foods Inc., which recalled hundreds of its beef products following the fears of contamination due to E. coli bacteria.
In its investigation review report, CFIA claimed that a combination of several deficiencies could have led to the occurrence of E. coli bacteria at the food processing plant of the company, following which it recalled more than its 250 beef products.
The agency has thoroughly identified the additional products, which had been affected by the recall and thus some more checks are being made to ensure that the affected ones are removed from store shelves and do not reach any buyer’s hand.
No single factor has been reviewed by the authority to the E. coli contamination rather the officials point out a combination of several deficiencies behind the cause.
Fortunately, no illnesses have been reported yet linking to the beef products.
The recall made by the company included products of ground beef sold by Sobeys, Foodland, IGA, and Douglas Meats stores in the Prairie provinces, Ontario, the Maritimes and some Big Way and Super A stores. Also, the products that were unlabeled and were sold between Aug. 24 through Sept. 16, at stores of small retailers, local meat markets and butcher shops were recalled.
