In the event of risks and/or outbreaks linked to a commercial food product processed in Alberta, there is a need for a coordinated response among all agencies involved in food safety within Alberta. The Canada-Alberta Partners in Food Safety (CAPiFS) developed an Alberta Foodborne Illness and Risk Investigation Protocol (FIRIP) for such incidents.

View a summary of the FIRIP.

The FIRIP is based on the Canada's Food-borne Illness Outbreak Response Protocol 2010 (FIORP) and is used as a guide for those agencies to ensure such a coordinated response.
