Composite feeds for food producing animals and their ingredients
Amendment of the Maximum Limits or Maximum Levels for contaminants in feed commodities (notification). Language(s): English. Number of pages: 5
The MAFF is proposing to establish or modify Maximum Levels for contaminants in composite feeds or in their ingredients for food producing animals on a basis of new scientific data from surveillance/monitoring by MAFF. The proposed levels are set: in accordance with the principle of "as low as reasonably achievable", or ALARA, as mentioned in the Codex General Standard for Contaminants and Toxins in Food and Feed (CODEX STAN 193-1995); and ensuring that at the maximum levels, the contaminants of concern will not pose health risk to food producing animals or humans. In addition, the food producing animals (cattle, sheep, goats, deer, pigs, poultry, and quails) to which the feeds are to be given will be specified in the notification when adopted.
