The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced an information collection requiring “renderers, feed manufacturers, and others involved in feed and feed ingredient manufacturing and distribution to maintain written procedures specifying the cleanout procedures or other means, and specifying the procedures for separating products that contain or may contain protein derived from mammalian tissue from all other protein products from the time of receipt until the time of shipment.”Intended to ensure compliance with regulations that prohibit certain animal proteins in ruminant feed to prevent the spread of bovine spongiform encephalopathy, the information collection will allow inspection personnel to confirm that an individual firm’s written procedures have been followed at the time of inspection. FDA has estimated that this information collection will involve an average annual burden of 14 hours per recordkeeping. Comments are requested by September 26, 2013. See Federal Register, August 17, 2013.
