Dear Valued Customer,

In response to the temporary closure of a large manufacturing plant by another manufacturer in the United States resulting in shortages of infant formulas, Health Canada is recommending that the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) temporarily exercise discretionary enforcement to allow the importation of certain products into Canada. This includes products that, while not fully complying with Canadian labelling and composition requirements, have been approved by a foreign regulatory authority or are allowed to be sold in foreign jurisdictions that have high quality and manufacturing standards similar to Canada.
