EDMONTON, Oct. 11, 2012 /CNW/ - XL Foods will process 5100 carcasses that have tested negative for E. coli in the Brooks, Alberta facility as a first step to verify intensified food safety testing processes and analysis.
Co-CEO Brian Nilsson said, "I apologize to all of those people affected by this recall. Our goal is to make sure it never happens again. We are optimistic to take this first strong step in concert with the CFIA towards resuming production in the facility."
The intensified testing and trend analysis will allow XL to identify product at risk and make sure it does not leave the plant.
Nilsson reaffirmed his pride in his employees. "Our employees are first rate. Our staff and management have always put food safety at the top of our priorities and we will place even more emphasis on our culture and processes in the future."
