The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) sent a warning letter to Alpha Feed Mill, Alpha, IL, detailing reults of an inspection that ran from Augutst through September 2018.

The letter noted "the inspection revealed deviations from the current good manufacturing practice (CGMP) requirements for medicated feeds. Such deviations cause the medicated and non-medicated animal feeds manufactured at [the] facility to be adulterated."

In addition, the letter noted, "the inspection revealed deviations for the requirements for veterinary feed directive (VFD) requirements and as a result [the facility is] not using your VFD new animal drugs in accordance with their approval. Therefore, the VFD drug is considered unsafe and the resulting VFD feed is adulterated."

The letter also addressed misbranded medicated feeds, noting "certain medicated feeds manufactured at [the] facility are misbranded because its labeling does not identify the drug and its quantity in the animal feed and fails to include the required cautionary statements."

The letter states that Alpha Feed Mill "promised corrective actions during the inspection which included providing the required labeling for custom bulk feeds, implementing a cleaning schedule, making needed repairs to buildings and equipment, and reviewing master formulas and associated labels for accuracy." These corrected actions would need to be presented in writing and vertified during a follow-up inspection. The facility has 15 days to respond after receiving the letter.
