The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has extended the consultation period on the proposed Safe Food for Canadians Regulations to June 30, 2015 in order to better understand the food safety challenges and costs that micro and small businesses face, and to seek their feedback on options that could reduce the burden associated with certain requirements. CFIA is particularly interested in feedback on the following components of international food safety systems:
1. Identification of food businesses;
2. Ability to trace a food product’s path one step forward and one step back; and
3. Preventive food safety controls.
