The (AFSS) is the FDA's programme for animal feed aimed at protecting human

The programme includes
oversight of labelling, production, distribution, and administration of all feed
ingredients and mixed feeds at all stages of manufacture, distribution, and use,
whether at commercial or non-commercial establishments.
The draft document defines feed as mixed feed as well as feed
ingredients, as stated in Appendix I.
It covers the entire spectrum
of agency activities from pre-approval of food additives and drugs for use in
feed, to establishing limits on feed contaminants, providing education and
training and conducting inspections and taking enforcement for ensuring
compliance with agency regulations.
