Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is providing temporary flexibility for certain labelling requirements for shell egg


May 30, 2020

Egg graders will need to meet the following labelling and documentation criteria when selling eggs on trays at retail:

The labelling information that is required to appear on eggs sold in trays at retail can be applied to or accompany the eggs in any format and by any means (for example, a sticker, highly visible sign, leaflet). The information must be available to the consumer or final purchaser

Egg graders must prepare and keep documentation to identify and keep track of the shell eggs that are subject to temporary labelling flexibility. The documentation can include:

  • the reason why labelling flexibility is required

  • the purchaser of the eggs

  • quantities

  • unique identifiers, if any

  • any actions taken to prevent or minimize risk to human health
