Consultation on regulatory classification of products containing viable microbial products intended for livestock species
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s (CFIA) and Health Canada have launched a 60-day consultation from May 7 to July 5, 2018, to seek feedback on proposed classification criteria for products containing viable microbial products (VMPs) in livestock species. VMPs are fed to livestock as a source of viable cells whose main purpose in the diet is to have beneficial effects in target livestock species.
This consultation seeks feedback on Appendix E-2: Viable microbial products (VMPs), a proposed addition to Health Canada’s Guidance Document on Classification of Veterinary Drugs and Livestock Feeds.
