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) (135Kb) for such incidents.

The FIRIP is based on the Canada Foodborne Illness Outbreak Response Protocol (2010): http://www.phac-aspc.gc.ca/zoono/fiorp-pritioa/index-eng.php and is used as a guide for those agencies to ensure such a coordinated response.
