FDA allows irradiation of poultry feed, feed ingredients

FDA has approved the use of irradiation for poultry feed and feed ingredients.

The Food & Drug Administration has amended the regulations for irradiation of animal feed and pet food to provide for the safe use of electron beam and x-ray sources for irradiation of poultry feed and feed ingredients, according to a May 10 notice in the Federal Register.

FDA noted that the action was taken in response to a food additive petition filed by Sadex Corp. More information is available at http://www.fda.gov/AnimalVeterinary/GuidanceComplianceEnforcement/ucm216453.htm.
