Following a September investigation into possible E. coli contamination of beef and veal products, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency has cancelled the Safe Food for Canadians licenses of three companies: Ryding-Regency Meat Packers Ltd, Canadian Select Meats Inc, and The Beef Boutique Ltd.

The license holders were determined to have provided false or misleading information to the CFIA about E. coli lab results following a massive meat recall of over 900 beef and veal products.

The companies can no longer slaughter food animals or prepare meat products for consumption in Canada or elsewhere.
