What does it mean when the shipment is waiting on CFIA for approval?

When a shipment is waiting on Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) for approval this means that the products that were shipped are requiring CFIA's review. When we send an entry for clearance that has Other Government Department (OGD) requirements, it must go through CFIA's system for approval before Canada Customs can approve or reject the entry. This can sometimes take several hours depending on the queue times at CFIA.
