I'm concerned about H5N1 Avian Flu—what safety measure does Biova employ?
Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI—also known as “avian flu” or “bird flu”) is a respiratory disease native to wild birds. HPAI has the potential to cause significant mortality in commercial flock operations.
Biova’s commitment to manufacturing the highest quality ingredients is unmatched—so is our commitment to safety. Vertical integration with egg laying and egg breaking facilities—which ensure complete control of raw material sourcing—is just one facet of Biova’s multi-point biosecurity program. All partner egg membrane source suppliers are USDA inspected and regulated. These partners follow all safety guidelines and protocols called for by the National Poultry Improvement Plan (NPIP), as well as the USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Services (APHIS) guidelines.
All Biova manufacturing facilities follow Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), and the very nature of Biova’s patented processes eliminate bacteria and pathogens from its products. These efforts are further enhanced by the inclusion of a licensed DVM on Biova’s management team responsible for overseeing all operations.
If an HPAI outbreak occurs where any Biova partner facility falls within the geographic monitoring zone, specific operating procedures, which include heightened monitoring and biosecurity protocols, will be enacted. These procedures include shutdown protocols for execution when warranted.
During the spring of 2015, HPAI did impact a percentage of the egg laying industry within the central United States. Biova immediately responded by implementing these pre-established monitoring and biosecurity protocols. When one of Biova’s suppliers was directly impacted, Biova immediately executed the shutdown protocol for the facility as a protective measure. At no time were any Biova products compromised.
Quality and safety are yet another reason Biova is The Clear Choice.
