On Tuesday, the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) formally revoked a 1967 policy that
prohibited the sale of feed contaminated with Salmonella. As a result of
this policy change the agency will allow feed known to be contaminated with Salmonella to
be fed to pigs, chickens and cattle. Food Animal Concerns Trust (FACT) is
deeply disappointed that the FDA is willfully eliminating such an important
public health safeguard.
