CFIA says Marmite, Irn-Bru not banned in Canada

SASKATOON – The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is reassuring consumers that some of their favourite British foods aren’t going to disappear from store shelves.

Tony Badger of Saskatoon Brit Foods said last week that the CFIA forced him to remove products like Irn-Bru and Marmite because they were illegal to sell in Canada.

The agency says varieties of products like Irn-Bru and Marmite are legal in Canada if they conform to Canadian requirements under Canada’s Food and Drug Regulations.

It says a shipment to Badger from Britain was stopped because it contained meat without proper documentation
