Statement Regarding Confirmation of FDA Commissioner
From Constance Cullman, President & CEO
Dec. 12, 2019

“The American Feed Industry Association appreciates Congress’ decision today to confirm Dr. Stephen Hahn to lead the Food and Drug Administration. AFIA looks forward to working with Commissioner Hahn, as FDA is the main agency regulating the animal food industry.

“Commissioner Hahn has as extensive medical resume and AFIA plans to grow his awareness on animal food issues. Some of our primary goals involve working with the new commissioner on the importance of an efficient, predictable review process of animal food ingredients as well as working with the agency on the implementation of the Food Safety Modernization Act.”
