FDA Finalizes Guidance on Animal Feed Safety
March 11, 2016

The Food and Drug Administration this week posted a final guidance outlining ways for producers to keep animal feed safe on the farm. The 15-page document, known as Guidance #203, recommends that farmers handle and store feed properly, keeping it away from stored pesticides or other agricultural chemicals, to prevent contamination. It also recommends producers get their feed from "safe and reliable sources" and keep track of where their feed came from in case there is a recall.

Guidance #203 is available at www.fda.gov/downloads/AnimalVeterinary/GuidanceComplianceEnforcement/GuidanceforIndustry/UCM438641.pdf.
