L I N K Hope you’re not eating as you read this story. Maple Leaf Foods, that company that gave you the Listeriosis scare a while back is in hot water for issues regarding all sorts of nastiness.
“But during a checkup less than a month later, Canadian Food Inspection Agency staff found mould on the walls and floor, slime underneath a meat-trimming table, leftover meat on wheeled container bins and rusty equipment.
The infractions are listed on an inspection report dated Oct. 10, 2008. They include:
-slime on part of the meat-trimming table in the curing room;
-meat debris on two steel container bins and unidentified debris on the brine tank in the curing room;
-a moist and mouldy cardboard sheet on the base of a skid in the curing room that holds bags of salt;
-mouldy caulking on the walls of the meat-defrosting room;
-a stack of dirty, mouldy and broken skids left in the frozen packoff room during cleaning;
-food debris on knife holders, floor and meat containers in the formulation room; and,
-rust on equipment used to process mock chicken.”
