TORONTO —

A Canadian meatpacking plant involved in a large recall of contaminated beef products over E. coli bacteria concerns is again being allowed to ship products to the U.S.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency said Friday that the U.S Department of Agriculture has relisted the XL Foods plant in Brooks, Alberta, effective immediately.

Canada revoked the plant's permit to export beef to the U.S. on Sept. 13 at the request of the USDA after several of the company's beef products were recalled.

A massive recall was also implemented in Canada after 16 people became ill.

The Canadian food inspection agency restored the plant's operating license on Oct. 23.

The plant's operations have been taken over by JBS USA, the American subsidiary of a Brazilian-owned enterprise that has an option to buy the plant.
