Resources for Animal Food Producers in Puerto Rico and the Southeastern U.S. Affected by Hurricane Isaias
As Hurricane Isaias approaches Puerto Rico and the Southeastern United States, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Veterinary Medicine reminds those who may be affected about resources available for animal food producers who may be harvesting, mixing, storing or distributing grains and other foods for animals.
The FDA reminds harvesters that crops harvested from flooded fields are often unacceptable because of contamination. Flood waters, which are different from pooled rain water, may contain sewage, pathogenic organisms, pesticides, chemical wastes, or other toxic substances. Mold growth is another serious concern for flood impacted crops intended for use in animal food. Some molds produce mycotoxins, which are toxic to certain animals and people.
