FDA Extends Comment Period for Animal Food-Safety Rule

<p>FDA explained it granted an extension to give interested persons more time to weigh in because the preventative control and proposed CGMP requirements are new to the animal food industry.</p>

WASHINGTON The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has extended the comment period for a proposed food-safety rule for animal food.

The comment period has been extended from Feb. 26 through March 31.

FDA has proposed establishing Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMPs) for animal food, requiring such measures as a written food-safety plan, hazard analysis and preventative controls.

The draft rule, issued under the 3-year-old Food Safety Modernization Act, is intended to protect animal food from contamination.

In a Jan. 31 notice, FDA explained it granted an extension to give interested persons more time to weigh in because the preventative controls and CGMP requirements are new to the animal food industry.

FDA also has extended the comment period for a draft risk assessment that relates to the animal food industry.
