The recent excitement regarding dog food contaminated with aflatoxin has
given me pause for thought. The fact that the Registrar of Farm Feeds has
the power to both withdraw products from the market place and to force the
closure of production facilities should serve as a wakeup call for all of us.
Selling unregistered products, manufactured in factories that do not comply
with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) guidelines, is something we all
need to be more careful about in the future. In addition, buyers of our
products (supermarkets) are demanding that the feed that is used on farms
comes from mills that comply with the guidelines.
