  據加拿大食品檢驗署網站報道,5月17日加拿大政府公布了最新食品安全行動計劃,主要目的是通過加強立法、更有效的檢查以及更有效的服務等手段進一步完善食品安全體系。

  通過該行動計劃,在未來兩年,加拿大食品檢驗署將發起一系列的食品安全行動。最值得關注的是,政府將同消費者以及其相關企業一起制定去年11月份通過的《加拿大食品安全法案》中有關的條例,并實施該法案。

  該行動的第一部將加強化牛肉安全條例,安全條例中聯邦注冊牛肉工廠控制大腸桿菌的強制規定已實施。2013年7月2日之前,生產機械嫩化牛肉的工廠,將生產的產品標注明是嫩化或烹飪,要附以說明。

  在未來兩年,加拿大食品檢驗署還將對一系列待修訂的食品條例進行審查,推進《加拿大食品安全法案》的實施工作。

Harper Government AnnouncesSafe Food For Canadians Action Plan

May 17, 2013, Saskatoon: Building on its long-standingcommitment to food safety, the Harper Government unveiled its Safe Food forCanadians Action Plan today. The Action Plan aims to further improve Canada’sfood safety system by strengthening food safety rules, more effectiveinspection, a renewed commitment to service and more information for consumers.

"Canada has a world-class food safety system andour Government is committed to taking real steps to make it evenstronger," said Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz. "This Action Plan isone of the steps our Government is taking to ensure that our system continuesto provide safe food for Canadian families today and in the future."

Through the Action Plan, the Canadian Food InspectionAgency (CFIA) will launch a number of significant food safety enhancements overthe next two years. Most notably, the CFIA will work with consumer groups andindustry to develop new regulations that will bring into force the Safe Foodfor Canadians Act, passed in November 2012.

As a first step, the CFIA is strengthening some of itsbeef safety rules and has implemented new mandatory requirements that willstrengthen the control of E. coli in federally-registered beef plants.

Also, by July 2, 2013, federally-registered plantsthat produce mechanically tenderized beef cuts, such as steaks or roasts, willbe required to label those products as tenderized and with cookinginstructions.

While these actions are specific tofederally-registered plants, Health Canada also intends to propose broadermandatory labels to identify beef that has been mechanically tenderized atretail outlets like supermarkets. This voluntary practice has been in placesince 2012.

This spring, the CFIA will launch a review of the foodregulations in Canada that will need to be revised in order to bring the SafeFood for Canadians Act into force. It is expected this work will take up to twoyears. Active consumer and stakeholder engagement in the process will beimportant to the success of efforts to bring the new legislation into force.

Consumer groups and stakeholders will have that opportunityat an upcoming food safety regulatory forum in June.
