Cargill Canola Stopped at Border (from Food Safety News)
It is not too far-fetched to say that trainloads of canola oil manufactured at Cargill Limited's seed processing facility at Clavet, Saskatchewan are being turned back at the border by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA).
October's "import refusal report" by FDA shows three Cargill canola oil shipments being turned back on Oct. 12 and then another 14 shipments via the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad being stopped on Oct. 30. It was to be used for animal feed in the U.S.
