The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a proposed rule under the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) aimed at improving the safety of food for animals.

This proposed regulation would help prevent foodborne illness in both animals and people and is open for public comments for 120 days.

The proposal is part of the Food Safety Modernization Act’s larger effort to modernize the food safety system for the 21st century and focus public and private efforts on preventing food safety problems, rather than relying primarily on responding to problems after the fact.

The proposed rule would require makers of animal feed and pet food to be sold in the U.S.to develop a formal plan and put into place procedures to prevent foodborne illness. The rule would also require them to have plans for correcting any problems that arise. The proposed rule would also require animal food facilities to, for the first time, follow proposed current good manufacturing practices that address areas such as sanitation.
