​Canadian Food Inspection Agency collects samples of olive oils and other expensive oils to verify accurate representation. The olive oil samples are tested for authenticity, adulteration, substitution or dilution with cheaper oils by assessing the sterol and fatty acid profile by gas chromatography. The sampled expensive oils are tested to determine if the fatty acid and sterol profiles, and other parameters, meet the standard for these oils by gas liquid chromatography.

​​The National Microbiological Monitoring Program (NMMP) and Food Safety Oversight Program (FSO) are food surveillance programs managed by the CFIA to verify industry compliance with microbial standards, facilitate access of Canadian food products to international markets, provide information on the effectiveness of food safety control measures and interventions, and maintain consumer confidence in the safety of the food supply. Under the NMMP and FSO Program, a broad range of imported and domestic food products are sampled at importers, at federally registered facilities (i.e., those that produce food products that are exported or traded inter-provincially) and at retail. Product and environmental samples collected were sent to CFIA laboratories and tested to verify industry compliance with food microbiological safety and quality standards.

Targeted surveys are used by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) to focus its surveillance activities on areas of highest health risk. The information gained from these surveys provides support for the allocation and prioritization of the Agency’s activities to areas of greater concern. Originally started as a project under the Food Safety Action Plan (FSAP), targeted surveys have been embedded in the CFIA’s regular surveillance activities since 2013. Targeted surveys are a valuable tool for generating information on certain hazards in foods, identifying and characterizing new and emerging hazards, informing trend analysis, prompting and refining health risk assessments, highlighting potential contamination issues, as well as assessing and promoting compliance with Canadian regulations.
