Earlier this week, the Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published Draft Guidance for Industry No. 239, “Human Food By-Products for Use as Animal Food” as part of the agency’s implementation of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). The draft guidance describes the regulatory requirements — including the provisions of FDA’s new food safety rule for animal food in 21 C.F.R. part 507 — that apply to human food by-products intended for use as animal food.
