CFIA suspends registration of egg-grading facility near Calgary

Food safety watchdog cites sanitation concerns as primary problem

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says it has suspended the registration of an egg-grading facility in southern Alberta due to sanitation concerns and other problems.

The CFIA says the Cluny Colony Egg Grading Facility east of Calgary has failed to correct deficiencies identified during inspections.

The agency says the facility will not be allowed to resume operating until it shows it can effectively manage food safety risks.

The CFIA says it inspects all registered egg-grading stations to protect consumers from undue risk of salmonella, a bacteria that can make people sick.

It says eggs are graded to ensure they are handled and packed in a sanitary environment.
