The biosafety of feed ingredients is a top priority for feed manufacturers and producers — especially as research has shown that finished feed and raw materials can act as fomites for viral disease transmission, e.g. porcine epidemic diarrhea (PED) virus and African swine fever (ASF). Animal protein byproduct suppliers take added precautions to ensure the safety and integrity of the product. For example, manufacturers of spray-dried plasma and blood products deploy several virus inactivation techniques to kill pathogens.
