Percentage of Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) notices reviewed within 270 days

Dictionary: Any substance that is intentionally added to food is a food additive, and is subject to premarket review and approval by FDA, unless the substance is generally recognized, among qualified experts, as having been adequately shown to be safe under the conditions of its intended use, or unless the use of the substance is otherwise excluded from the definition of a food additive. A safe animal feed supply helps ensure healthy animals and people. CVM ensures animal and human food safety by reviewing and approving new ingredients for animal foods. New ingredients used in animal food without review and approval can result in harm to animals and humans consuming edible products.
