US Pork Organizations Share USDA’s Non-Animal Origin Feed Ingredient Risk Evaluation Framework

The Swine Health Information Center along with the National Pork Board, National Pork Producers Council, and American Association of Swine Veterinarians are sharing the recently published USDA Non-Animal Origin Feed Ingredient (NOFI) Risk Evaluation Framework: Scoping document. This work was done to assess the range of potentially contaminated ingredients and source countries, the variety of feed processing and associated kill steps, and multiple pathways of introduction and exposure of swine. USDA says a single comprehensive import risk analysis is not feasible. In this work, USDA’s initial focus was to identify and rank risk factors considered predictive for whether any given NOFI shipment poses substantive risk of introducing ASF to the United States.
