FDA Delays Implementation Of Drug Residue Testing14 January 2011
US - The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has decided to delay its plan to test milk samples for animal drug residues, giving the agency more time to gather comments and input from all industry stakeholders.
FDA affirmed its commitment to work with IDFA and others who would be affected by the proposed sampling programme and agreed to notify IDFA of any further change in plans. The sampling programme was scheduled to begin this month.
IDFA has been working closely with FDA's Centre for Veterinary Medicine and Centre for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN) to address member concerns regarding the sampling and testing programme.
