While the House of Commons held an emergency debate over food safety, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency added dozens more products to a massive beef recall.
The number of beef products now on the recall list numbers more than 1500 after an E. coli scare at the XL Foods packing plant in Brooks. Opposition MPs blame Ottawa's cuts at the CFIA.
At a Calgary news conference Wednesday, CFIA president George Da Pont said his inspectors did not get an immediate response from XL Foods when they first asked for information two days after the discovery of E. coli by US officials on September 4th. The initial recall did not go out until September 16th, 10 days later.
