The FDA has issued action levels for aflatoxins which provide specific, maximum tolerable amounts for aflatoxin in a variety of feedstuffs (e.g., corn, cottonseed meal, and peanut products.

Aflatoxins are responsible for damaging up to 25% of the world's food crops, resulting in large economic losses in developed countries and human and animal disease in under-developed ones. In addition to aflatoxins, the presence of other mycotoxins, particularly fumonisins, brings additional concerns about the safety of food and field supplies.5/5(1). Aflatoxins in Animal Feeds and Animal Feed Ingredients and Milk Aflatoxins are a group of chemically related toxins produced as natural by-products during the growth of certain common molds. The aflatoxins are designated as B1, B2, G1, and G2. These compounds are demonstrated liver toxins and liver carcinogens.
