FDA Animal Feed Safety System 2008 Public Meeting

May 14, 2008
9:00 am to 4:00 pm

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is holding a public meeting to cover changes made to the Animal Feed Safety System (AFSS) project since last year’s public meeting, and to present work-in-progress on a method for ranking feed hazards according to the risks they pose to animal and public health and a risk-based method for prioritizing feed establishment inspections.  

This is the 5th in a series of Animal Feed Safety System (AFSS) Public Meetings.   The model being developed for assessing risks from feed hazards  consists of two components: 1) Health Consequence Scoring and 2) Exposure Scoring. At this meeting the Agency will describe how the two components are combined to arrive at a ranking of risks of the more common hazards in swine feed.  FDA is also using risk-based criteria for deciding where best to focus its inspectional resources.  A brief presentation will be made at this meeting showing progress to date as it applies to feed establishment inspections. 

If you have further questions regarding the subject of the meeting, contact Zoe Gill at 240-453-6867 or by email: zoe.gill@fda.hhs.gov.
