17/03/2015: Costco Canada fish import licence suspended by food safety agency

Costco Canada's fish importing licence has been suspended, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency said, after the federal food safety watchdog determined the company violated the country's Fish Inspection Regulations, according to Reuters.

The agency did not issue a recall for any products in relation to suspension.


The CFIA, which suspended the license on February 26, publicized the suspension on Friday, saying Costco Wholesale Corp did not consistently apply adequate food safety controls.

Under the penalty, the wholesale retail giant cannot import fish products into the country until the agency is satisfied the company has implemented the necessary changes.

The CFIA said Costco violated rules that required written notification for each shipment of fish to an inspector either before or within 48 hours of importing the products, and regulations that stipulated imported fish cannot be moved without permission.
