FDA Proposes Rule to Help Improve the Safety of Animal Food

The new rule will help ensure the safety of animal food, which in turn will hopefully minimize the spread of foodborne illnesses in both animals and humans

According to a press release from the FDA, the organization has issued a proposed rule under the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act that will help improve the safety of animal food. By making the food animals eat safer, the proposed regulation would minimize foodborne illness in both animals and humans.

Under the proposed rules, animal feed and pet food producers based in the U.S. would have to develop a formal plan and put procedures into place that would prevent foodborne illnesses. In addition, the makers of animal food would have to follow proposed current good manufacturing and sanitation processes at their facilities.

The rule would affect the safety of humans in that people can get sick by handling contaminated pet food or by interacting with an animal that has a foodborne illness.

The proposed rule it open for public comments for 120 days.
