Preventive Controls for Animal Feed Rule

The Preventive Control Rule for Animal Feed requires manufacturers and processors of food for animals to establish and implement a food safety system that includes an analysis of hazards and establishment of risk-based preventive controls.

The College of Agricultural Sciences has a dedicated team working on training and resources to support the Preventive Control for Animal Feed rule. More information is forthcoming.
