Proposed FDA Rule to Establish Good Manufacturing Practices and HACCP for Feed Mills

Nov 5, 2013


The FDA has issued a proposed rule to impose Good Manufacturing Practices based on hazard analyses and risk-based preventive controls for feed supplied to livestock and companion species.  The proposed rule is based on the Food Safety Modernization Act signed into law on January 4th 2011. 

Previously EGG-CITE has listed scenarios under which egg producers would be subject to the FSMA.  Generally in-line units supplied by an on-site or Company-owned feed mixing plant dedicated to the complex would be exempt from the FSMA proposed rules. 

It is however the opinion of this commentator that all feed plants, despite their legally-exempt status, should operate in consistency with the intent of the proposed rule.
