XL Foods Plant Resumes Shipments To U.S.


OTTAWA — The Alberta-based XL Foods beef plant, which was at the centre of what’s reported to be the largest beef recall in Canadian history, has been granted permission to immediately resume shipments to the U.S.

On Dec. 7, the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) informed the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) that Establishment 38, XL Foods Inc., had been re-listed, allowing the company to resume exports.

“It’s tremendous news for the company,” said Cameron Bruett, a spokesman for JBS, the Brazil-based meat-packing company that is now operating the XL plant, according to The Canadian Press.

The agency reports that monitoring activities are being implemented at the plant to ensure the company’s long-term and preventive measures continue to be implemented effectively.
