FDA Makes Progress in Revising Cattle Feed Ban
August 19, 2005
August 19, 2005 -- Review of public feedback on the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) proposals to overhaul its ?feed ban? is finished, reported spokesperson Rae Jones. The agency has drafted a new rule which is being considered for publication. If the rule is agreed upon at the FDA, the agency will once again hold a public comment session.
The FDA has said the reason behind the proposed expansion in the feed ban is to control the risks associated with cross contamination throughout feed manufacture, keeping cattle from being accidentally given feed for other livestock that may contain infected bovine material.
