FDA Update: 2019 animal product recalls


Morguefile.com

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recalled 28 animal products from January through September of 2019, the agency reported.

The FDA allows three types of recalls to remove such products from the market. The company involved can remove a product based on its own initiative, or the FDA has the option to make a recall request to a company or use its statutory authority to order a recall.

Under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, animal foods are required to be safe to consume, be accurately labeled and be manufactured in sanitary conditions. They must also be free of potentially harmful microorganisms.
