FDA reissues 'complex' animal feed rule proposals - AFIA says many of its recommendations have been included

The US feed sector has hailed the move by the FDA to issue revised proposals for complex new animal feed manufacturing rules under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).

“This re-proposal will allow stakeholders to review these rules one last time before the final rule is issued,” said American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) President, Joel Newman.

The reissued rules are:

  • Produce Safety Regulation
  • Foreign Supplier Verification Program
  • Current Good Manufacturing and Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Controls for Human Food, and
  • Current Good Manufacturing Practices and Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Controls for Food for Animals

The AFIA has submitted comments on five sets of FSMA-related proposed rules over the past 10 months. “At first glance, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has incorporated many of the changes AFIA recommended in its comments,” said the feed industry representatives.
