The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) on December 10, 2019, issues direction regarding compliance of commercial feeds or feed materials intended for food producing animals under the Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006. It has been noted that foods of animal origins are at times found to be non-compliant with the relevant food quality and safety standards with respect to pesticides, heavy metals and Aflatoxin M1. The major source of these contaminants is largely through feed and fodder. Thus, FSSAI has decided that commercial feeds or feed materials intended for food producing animals shall comply with the relevant BIS standards in order to address the issue on an interim basis and shall not be manufactured, imported, distributed and sold except under the BIS Certification Mark.
