Safe Food for Canadians

Safe Foods for Canadians – What you Need to Know

February 23, 2021

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is responsible for the safety of food products sold in Canada by enforcing the recently implemented Safe Foods for Canadians Regulation (SFCR). It is a compilation of 14 sets of regulations governing safety of human foods and slaughter animals sold and traded. Though the requirements of SFCR are similar to the Preventive Control Rules for Human Food of USFDA’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), SFCA is distinctly different, with unique licensing requirements, its own set of preventive control plans and traceability provisions for both licensed and non-licensed foods.

What do you need to know about SFCR and compliance requirements? Join EAS and independent consultant Rama Narasimhan for a look at the Safe Foods for Canadians Regulations and specific compliance challenges differentiating it from FSMA.

We’ll start with an overview and then go in-depth with key examples highlighting questions and their solutions.

California Prop 65

California Proposition 65 and the Food Industry

Presented by EAS Independent Consultant Tom Jonaitis

Proposition 65 is a statute that all companies selling products into California must comply with by providing warnings if their products contain certain chemicals that result in consumer exposure above a certain daily threshold. Failure to comply with the stringent requirements of Prop 65, which are above and beyond the requirements of any other federal or state safety/regulatory requirements, can result in costly enforcement action. The food and dietary supplement industries have been frequently targeted for alleged violations, and industry as a whole pays out tens of millions of dollars each year to plaintiff lawyers finding non-compliant products. EAS Independent Consultant, Tom Jonaitis, will provide key insights into the compliance and enforcement trends, important regulatory changes/case studies that highlight compliance issues, and practical guidance on how to ensure products are compliant.
