Providing people with animal food safety education is powerful. By unifying the CGMP requirements with a food safety system, animal food and pet food safety are formed.
BATON ROUGE, La. (PRWEB) December 12, 2017
The Food Safety Solutions Consultants, a leading international food safety consulting company specializing in creating a global culture of food safety, announces essential online web-based courses to assist animal feed and pet food producers to comply with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP) requirements.
Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP) Requirements
The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Preventive Controls for Animal Food rule was enforced in September 2017 in conjunction with the final rule requiring animal food facilities comply with the preventive controls requirements implementing the Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP) requirements. This rule requires animal food facilities and producers to establish a food safety plan to include; preventive controls, hazard analysis, corrective actions, verification activities, a recall plan, and more. In conjunction, qualifications and training of individuals who manufacture, process, pack or hold animal food can significantly reduce the probability of risk-based controls, ensuring the production of safe and high-quality animal feed and pet food.
According to the FDA, “As part of its evaluation of known or reasonably foreseeable hazards, a facility must consider any relevant factors, such as the effect of manufacturing/processing procedures, on the safety of the finished animal food for the intended animal (21 CFR 507.33(d)).” The FDA has emphasized a preventive approach focused on preventing the manufacture, distribution, and intake of unsafe animal feed and pet food. “Ultimately, preventive maintenance provides many short-term and long-term benefits including education and training, improving quality of food, risk defense, and increasing operating efficiencies,” stated Hunter Young, President & CEO, Food Safety Solutions Consultants.
Unify Food Safety
“Providing people with solid solutions through food safety education is powerful,” said Young, “through our online web-based Animal Food Preventive Controls for Qualified Individuals training courses, we aim to educate and train people both domestically and internationally, ensuring a comprehensive understanding of the FSMA for Animal Food rule and the CGMP requirements.” By unifying the CGMP requirements with education and a food safety system, a real connection is made integrating safety with trust and increasing overall human assurance in animal food and pet food safeness.
