FDA-TRACK: Center for Veterinary Medicine - Animal Food Safety

FDA's Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) regulates animal drugs, animal devices and animal food under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. CVM protects and promotes the health of humans and animals by ensuring the safety of the American food supply, the safety of animal food and devices, and the safety and effectiveness of animal drugs.

Ensuring that the food people and animals eat is safe and protected from contamination is an essential element of promoting human and animal health. Through the Food Safety Modernization Act, FDA has the mandate and authority to construct a modern integrated food safety system that protects food from farm to table, establishes shared responsibility for food safety among all participants, and strengthens accountability for prevention of foodborne illness, domestically and internationally.

Each FDA-TRACK program area collects, analyzes, and reports its performance measures and results. Explore the progress CVM is making towards its Animal Food Safety strategic initiatives below:
