On September 11, 2015 the FDA released the final rule entitled, “
Current Good Manufacturing Practice and Risk-Based Preventive Controls for Food for Animals,” commonly called the Animal Food Rule.
The produce industry has a limited role in the production of animal feed; to cite one example, produce of insufficient quality culled from a harvest or process operation sometimes becomes animal feed.
It’s anticipated the agency will soon be issuing important companion guidance documents for all final FSMA rules that will provide more detailed information about coverage and compliance requirements. There will be an opportunity to provide comments on these upcoming draft guidance documents, so stay tuned.
