FDA Animal Feed Safety System 2006 Public Meeting

September 12, 2006
9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is holding a public meeting to present work-in-progress on a method for ranking animal feed contaminants by their relative risks to animal and human health. At this meeting, the Agency will describe the methods it plans to use to develop animal and human Health Consequence Scoring for chemical, physical and biological feed contaminants.

Prior to the public meeting, the FDA will place two documents in Docket No. 2003N-0312 entitled, “List of Potentially Hazardous Contaminants in Animal Feed and Feed Ingredients” and “Determining Health Consequence Scoring for Feed Contaminants.” The documents will summarize the Agency’s methods for assigning animal and human Health Consequence Scoring to physical, chemical and biological contaminants that may be present in animal feed. Details of these methods will be discussed at the meeting. An agenda for the meeting will also be placed in docket.

You may submit written comments to the Division of Dockets Management (HFA 305), Food and Drug Administration, 5630 Fishers Lane, rm. 1061, Rockville, MD 20852. Two copies of written comments are to be submitted, except that individuals may submit one copy.
