FDA Public Meeting on Opportunity for Public Input on Standards for Pet Food and Other Animal Feeds


The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing a public meeting to obtain input from stakeholder groups, including, but not limited to, the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO), veterinary medical associations, animal health organizations, and pet food manufacturers, on the development of standards for pet food, including ingredient standards and definitions, processing standards, and updated labeling standards.  Establishment by regulation of such standards for pet food was mandated by the FDA Amendments Act of 2007 (FDAAA).  FDA also would like to obtain input on whether the ingredient standards and definitions and processing standards should cover all animal feeds.  Additional information about the meeting may be found in the April 21, 2008 Federal Register http://www.fda.gov/OHRMS/DOCKETS/98fr/08-1155.htm.
