Hazards Associated with Animal Feed: Report of the Joint FAO/WHO expert meeting, 12-15 May 2015, FAO headquarters, Rome, Italy - FAO Animal Production and Health Reports (Paperback)Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (author)
- Coming soon
The need for feed for terrestrial and aquatic animals continues to rise with increasing demand for foods of animal origin. However, the challenge is not only to meet this growing need for feed but also to ensure its safety. Hazards in feed may be inherent to feed ingredients as well as introduced during feed production, processing, handling, storage, transportation and use.
Among the recommendations made during the meeting were the development of FAO/WHO guidelines for the prevention and control of hazards identified in feed, and support for member countries in addressing them. Furthermore, the expert meeting recommended that the Codex Alimentarius Commission develop and update provisions addressing feed and more specifically those related to feed sources and technologies of relevance to the feed sector.
