Title: Process Controls for Animal Feed Ingredients and Mixed Animal Feed 
Abstract: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is proposing regulations for process controls for animal feed ingredients and mixed animal feed to provide greater assurance that marketed animal feed ingredients and mixed feeds intended for all animals, including pets, are safe. This action is being taken as part of the FDA’s Animal Feed Safety System initiative. The proposed process controls will apply to animal feed ingredients and mixed animal feed, including pet food. This action is also being taken to carry out the requirements of the Food and Drug Administration Amendments Act of 2007. Section 1002(a) directs FDA to establish by regulation processing standards for pet food. This same provision of the law also directs that, in developing these new regulations, FDA obtain input from its stakeholders, including the Association of American Feed Control Officials, veterinary medical associations, animal health organizations, and pet food manufacturers.
