The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has suspended the federal registration of the Cluny Colony egg grading facility in Cluny, Alberta. The suspension was made effective on September 2.

The CFIA has determined that sanitation and general building maintenance practices are not being reliably implemented in the facility as required by the agency’s egg regulations. The company, according to the CFIA, has failed to correct deficiencies previously identified throughCFIA inspections.

Cluny Colony Egg Grading Facility will not be able to resume operations as a federally registered establishment until it has fully implemented the necessary corrective actions and the CFIA is confident in the facility's capacity to effectively manage food safety risks.

Licences and registrations of federally registered establishments or companies can be suspended or cancelled for failure to comply with relevant CFIA Acts and Regulations. The CFIA publishes a list of suspensions and cancellations on its website.
