On October 2, 2020, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) announced new requirements for romaine imported into Canada from the United States.

In response, a group of industry associations released a Question-and-Answer document, which was updated October 7.

This document was prepared by the Arizona Leafy Green Marketing Agreement, California Leafy Green Marketing Agreement, Canadian Horticultural Council, Canadian Produce Marketing Association, Produce Marketing Association, United Fresh Produce Association and Western Growers.

The information contained in this document is based on an understanding of the requirements as of the date of release. This document was reviewed by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and will continue to be updated as required.
