Safe Feed - USDA CVM

Within FDA, the Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) has a role in ensuring the safety of animal food, which includes feed ingredients, mixed feed, medicated feed, and pet food, treats, and chews. CVM uses a comprehensive program - the Animal Feed Safety System1 - to carry out its animal food regulatory responsibilities. Manufacturers and users are responsible for producing safe feed and pet food, and for following FDA regulations. This page provides links to information about safe feed and pet food for consumers, animal feeders, animal feed manufacturers, pet food and pet treat manufacturers, and ingredient suppliers.
