Americans > Canadians?

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency didn’t allow Americans to eat food that was under investigation. However, these deli meats were good enough for Canadians. These meats were under investigation for the killer listeriosis. This happened last week. Why should Canadians be treated any differently than Americans? Our agency should be working for us, not the Americans. The meat should have been discontinued in both countries. Safety for everyone comes first, not just Americans.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency cut off access to American markets for the Toronto plant at the centre of an ongoing listeriosis investigation connected to tainted deli meats while allowing the company to continue to produce food for Canadians, Canwest News Service has learned.

The Siena Foods Ltd., facility was quietly delisted as an eligible certified plant to export meat to the United States this week in response to recalls in Canada last week of four different deli meats for possible listeria contamination.
