FDA Postpones Routine Feed Mill Inspections During COVID-19 Outbreak
In their most recent statement, the FDA is focusing on Safety of Regulated Products While Scaling Back Domestic Inspections. Domestic for-cause inspections will be evaluated and conducted if deemed mission-critical.
Importantly, during this interim period we’re evaluating additional ways to conduct our inspectional work that would not jeopardize public safety and protecting both the firms and the FDA staff. This can include, among other things, evaluating records in lieu of conducting an onsite inspection on an interim basis when travel is not permissible, when appropriate.
