Iowa gets FDA approval

to blend corn with aflatoxin

Sept. 27, 2012 | 0 comments

The Iowa agriculture department says federal officials have approved a request for corn contaminated by a poison-producing fungus to be blended with other corn for animal feed.

The Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship announced Tuesday (Sept. 18) the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the agency's request to blend corn containing more than 20 parts per billion of aflatoxin with corn that has lower levels or no aflatoxin.

The FDA approved a similar request in 2003 and 2005.

Aflatoxins are a group of chemicals produced by certain mold fungi. They can occur more frequently in hot, dry summer conditions.

The agriculture departments say the blended corn is safe for animals. Corn with more than 20 parts per billion can't be used for human consumption or as feed for dairy animals.
