AAFCO just published the minutes from the Pet Food Committee webinar meeting finalizing the requirement of pet food human grade claims. For those that want to understand those requirements for a human grade pet food…
This meeting took place on March 17, 2016 via webinar. The meeting was to finalize and vote (AAFCO members only) on the ‘guidance’ document for pet food human grade claims. The guidance was developed to further explain the legal definition of human grade pet food. As reminder, the approved legal definition of human grade pet food is:
“Human Grade: Every ingredient and the resulting product are stored, handled, processed, and transported in a manner that is consistent and compliant with regulations for good manufacturing practices (GMPs) for human edible foods as specified in 21 CFR 117.”
In the document posted below, the ‘guidelines’ for pet food human grade claims begins on page 5. To better understand the minutes, you might want to read the guidelines first.
Wishing you and your pet(s) the best,
