Animal feed is an integral part of the food chain and its
safety has been recognised as a shared value and
responsibility. The use of production methods and feed
additives that minimise microbial contaminants in feed
are of key importance to animal and human health. In a
controversial decision, EU Member States recently voted
to deny the authorisation of formaldehyde for use as a
feed additive for control of Salmonella in feed. Zoe Kay
at Cuckoo Consulting discusses that the alternative
technologies need to both be effective at reducing levels
of Salmonella and Enterobacteriaceae and provide
protection from recontamination.
