Calls on carry-over from feed to food of unavoidable and unintended residues of approved veterinary drugs

(for FAO/WHO Stakeholder Meeting on 7 January 2019 and Expert Consultation Meeting on 8 to 11 January 2019 – FAO HQ, Rome, Italy)


The 23rd Codex Committee on Residue of Veterinary Drugs in Food has requested FAO and WHO to provide scientific advice to address the issue of unintended presence of residues of approved veterinary drugs in food of animal origin resulting from carry-over of veterinary drugs in feed.

Even under circumstances where all relevant good practices (e.g. GAP, GMP, etc.) had been fully implemented and followed in feed manufacturing facilities, an unintended and unavoidable presence of low levels of certain veterinary drugs in feed lots that follow the production of medicated feed can be observed. To evaluate any potential consequences for food safety from such feed, it is critical to determine whether such low-level presence of residues in food associated with unavoidable and unintended carry-over in feed: (i) would constitute a threat to human health; and (ii) would impact negatively on trade. In addition, potential risk management measures should be developed to mitigate any risk as necessary.

This information will be used to evaluate the need for any new work or revision of Codex Code of Practise on Good Animal Feeding or on the development of specific guidance or capacity development assistance to countries for implementing the Code.
