USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) reissued a directive providing instructions to inspection program personnel (IPP) regarding their responsibilities in an official establishment that manufactures animal food or similar uninspected articles not for human consumption in the edible product department. The reissuance clarifies that inspection is not required when an establishment conducts High Pressure Processing (HPP) or irradiation of animal food or similar uninspected articles, provided the establishment has procedures in place to identify, segregate and control product intended for human food. FSIS also removed instructions requiring HPP or irradiation of animal food and similar uninspected articles outside the approved hours of operation.
