TraceGains will present a webinar on December 13 at 12 p.m. EDT, entitled, "Preparing for FSMA's Animal Food/Feed Rule."
The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) will make the industry subject to mandatory Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) and a new preventive controls program under this new rule (section 103 of FSMA for animal food facilities that must register under section 415 of FD&C Act, 21 U.S.C. § 350d, to establish and implement a food safety system that includes a hazard analysis and risk-based preventive controls).
Under FSMA, the following would become requirements:
• A written food safety plan
• Hazard analysis
• Preventive controls for hazards that are reasonably likely to occur
• Corrective actions
• Associated records
The webinar will feature Marc Sanchez, senior counsel and adjunct professor, who will address the new proposed rule for the petfood and animal feed industry and its most distinctive and impactful features. Register online to attend the webinar.

It gives more direct control to CVM in establishing and maintaining ingredient definitions
The new US food safety legislation will also affect regulation of petfood
Smaller lobbying groups employed most often to fight for clients' interests
Processors should carefully develop, validate and implement an effective kill step to support production of pathogen-free petfoods
Public meetings invited comments and provided updates
The intent was to educate regulators and industry about the Model Pet Food Regulations
