The company at the centre of a massive beef recall has finally issued a public statement.
XL Foods has been keeping a very low profile since the first reports of E.coli in early September. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency temporarily closed the XL beef plant in Brook, Alberta this week.
In a news release, XL says it is committed to regaining the public's trust. The firm will introduce a number of measures including video surveillance, an improved washing system and working closely with federal inspectors to ensure the problem never happens again.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says it will not reopen the Brooks plant until XL can implement all of the new measure on a ''consistent'' basis.
