Questions and Answers for Brewers/Distillers on Preventive Controls for Animal Food

Since the March 31 close of the comment period on FDA's proposed animal feed rule, "Current Good Manufacturing Practice and Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Controls for Food for Animals," FDA has heard many concerns from brewers and distillers about whether the rule will allow them to continue providing spent grains (by-products from alcoholic-beverage brewing and distilling) for animal feed. These spent grains are very commonly used as animal feed, and are a subset of the much broader practice of human food manufacturers sending their peels, trimmings, and other edible by-products to local farmers or feed manufacturers for animal feed uses rather than to landfills. FDA recognizes these concerns and addresses some of the questions that have been raised in the Q&A.
