FDA issued the CGP entitled “Sec. 690.700 Salmonella Contamination of Dry Dog Food (CPG 690.700)” on October 1, 1980. CPG 690.700 was issued as a result of a human case of salmonellosis traced to dry dog food; a subsequent FDA-conducted survey of dry dog food; a risk analysis; and the development of an appropriate sampling technique to test dry dog food for salmonella organisms.
Elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register, FDA is announcing the availability of a new CPG to address all food for animals that may contain salmonella organisms, including dry dog food. This new CPG, entitled “Compliance Policy Guide Sec. 690.800 Salmonella in Food for Animals,” supersedes CPG 690.700 and makes CPG 690.700 obsolete. The notice of availability for CPG “Sec. 690.800 Salmonella in Food for Animals” is published elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register.
FDA is withdrawing CPG 690.700, in its entirety, to eliminate obsolete compliance policy.
