The Food Safety and Modernization Act requires covered animal food production facilities to develop food safety plans that includes an analysis of hazards. This hazard analysis must consider known or reasonably foreseeable hazards. The hazard evaluation must include a number of factors, among those are an assessment of the severity of illness or injury if the hazard were to occur and the probability that the hazard will occur in the absence of preventive controls. This presentation will discuss the development of a generic hazard analysis that includes assessments of hazard severity and probability of occurrence that may be useful to animal food producers as a starting point in development facility specific hazard analyses.
