FDA Extends Comment Period for New Animal Drug Labeling Questions

FDA is seeking additional comments on a notice originally published in the Federal Register on August 9 related to labeling of new animal drugs used in animals used for food. The request calls for commentary on the minimum length of time that animals are transported to slaughter and spend at slaughter facilities before being killed, milking frequencies of dairy cows, and interpretation of “zero-day withdrawal” labels. The comment period is now open until January 6, 2020.
