Federal agency postpones feed mill inspection to minimize social contact during COVID-19

Administration Commissioner Stephen Hahn announced last week that the FDA would temporarily postpone all routine inspections to slow the spread of COVID-19 and to protect the health of FDA staff. For-cause inspections and any other assignments deemed mission critical will continue, according to an FDA spokesperson. The temporary inspection policy applies to all facilities processing food, animal feed, drugs, biological products and tobacco.
