Section 785.355 Protection from Contamination
a) Equipment used to administer drugs and medicines shall not be cleaned in the wash vats and shall be stored so as not to contaminate the milk or milk contact surfaces of equipment.
b) Drugs and medicines shall be stored in such a manner that they cannot contaminate the milk or milk product contact surface of the equipment, containers or utensils. Such products shall be properly labeled to include:
1) The name and address of the manufacturer or distributor (for O.T.C. drugs and medicines), or veterinary practitioner dispensing the product (for Rx and Extra-Label use drugs and medicines);
2) Directions for use, and prescribed withholding times;
3) Cautionary statements, if needed; and
4) Active ingredient(s) in the drug product.
c) Unapproved and/or improperly labeled drugs and medicines shall not be used to treat dairy animals and shall not be stored in the milkhouse, milking barn, stable or parlor. Drugs and medicines intended for treatment of non-lactating dairy animals shall be segregated from those drugs and medicines used for lactating animals. (Separate shelves in cabinets, refrigerators, or other storage facilities satisfy this item.)
d) Topical antiseptics, wound dressings (unless intended for direct injection into the teat), vaccines and other biologics, and dosage form vitamins and/or mineral products are exempt from labeling and storage requirements except when it is determined that they are stored in such a manner that they may contaminate the milk or milk product surfaces of containers or utensils.
