FDA Issues Revisions to Proposed Rule on Spent Grain

Share Post

The federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has released a Proposed Rule Supplement guidance document which clarifies information concerning the handling of spent grain. Breweries that sell less than $2.5 million in animal feed will be exempt from the formal Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) plans as long as good manufacturing practices are followed.

FDA is proposing certain record keeping requirements, appropriate labeling of containers used for spent grain and that FDA inspectors (or those contracted through the states) will have the authority to review spent grain storage practices and to ensure that storage units are structurally sound and clean. The proposed rule revisions were published in the Federal Register on September 29, with the comment period closing on December 15, 2014.
