COMPLIANCE POLICY GUIDE (CPG)

CPG Sec. 675.100 Diversion of Contaminated Food for Animal Use March 1995

Final

CPG Sec. 675.100 Diversion of Contaminated Food for Animal Use

Issued by:
Guidance Issuing Office
Center for Veterinary Medicine
Office of Regulatory Affairs

BACKGROUND:

FDA does not object to the diversion to animal feed of human food adulterated with rodent, roach, or bird excreta. However, since rodent, roach, or bird excreta are vectors for microorganisms deleterious to the health of animals, including such things as parasite eggs, salmonella, leptospira, or other pathogenic organisms, diversion has not been authorized except following a heat treatment appropriate to destroy such organisms.

POLICY:

Diversion of rodent, roach, or bird contaminated food for animal feed use, whether pursuant to a court order or a voluntary action, requires heat treatment to destroy pathogenic organisms. The *Center for* Veterinary Medicine (HFV-236) should be contacted on a case-by-case basis concerning suitability of proposed treatment, whether pursuant to a court order or a voluntary action.

* Material between asterisks is new or revised.*
