Animal Feed Safety Section Information
Manufacturers and distributors of commercial feed and feed ingredients intended to be used as animal feeds, including pet foods, are regulated by the state of Michigan.
The Michigan Department of Agriculture & Rural Development (MDARD) routinely inspects the manufacturers and distributors of commercial feeds and feed ingredients to make sure they are providing products that are safe and effective for their intended purposes. MDARD, through its Animal Feed Safety Section, reviews labels to prevent deceptive labeling practices and investigates reports of animal deaths or illnesses where feeds may be implicated.
For general information, Feed Labeling, and Tonnage questions, contact MDARD-AnimalFeed@Michigan.gov. Feed-related questions or complaints may also be directed to the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, Pesticide and Plant Pest Management Division at 800-292-3939.
