Pet food companies must re-register with FDA by December 31

    A part of the Food Safety Modernization Act, facilities that manufacture, process, pack or hold pet food in the US or foreign pet food facilities that export to the US must re-register with the US Food and Drug Administration in even-numbered years.
    In 2012, facilities must re-register between October 1 and December 31, or face civil or criminal penalties, including the possibility of product seizure and plant closure.
    The initial requirement to register facilities began in 2003 under the Bioterrorism Act, but facilities must now register bi-annually under new requirements in the Food Safety Modernization Act. Facilities must also update registration when facility information changes.
