FDA Animal Feed Safety System 2007 Public Meeting

May 22, 2007
9a.m. to 4p.m.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is holding a public meeting to present work-in-progress on a method for ranking feed contaminants according to the relative risks they pose to animal and public health.

This is the 4th in a series of Animal Feed Safety System (AFSS) Public Meetings. The FDA is presenting work-in-progress on a method for ranking animal feed contaminants by their relative risks to animal and human health. The relative risk posed by feed contaminants to animal and human health consists of two components; namely, 1) Health Consequence Scoring and 2) Exposure Scoring. At this meeting the Agency will describe the methods it plans to use to develop animal and human Exposure Scoring for chemical, physical and microbiological feed contaminants.

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.
