SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Elanco Animal Health, A Division of Eli Lilly & Co., Lilly Corporate Center, Indianapolis, IN 46285, filed NADA 140-955 that provides for use of Coban® (45 or 60 grams per pound (g/lb) of monensin as monensin sodium) and Flavomycin® (2, 4, or 10 g/lb of bambermycins activity) Type A medicated articles to make combination Type C medicated feeds. The combination Type C medicated feeds containing 54 to 90 g/ton monensin and 1 to 2 g/ton bambermycins and are used for prevention of coccidiosis caused by Eimeria adenoeides, E. meleagrimitis, and E. gallopavonis; and for improved feed efficiency in growing turkeys. The combination Type C medicated feeds containing 54 to 90 g/ton monensin and 2 g/ton bambermycins and are used for prevention of coccidiosis caused by E. adenoeides, E. meleagrimitis, and E. gallopavonis; and for increased rate of weight gain and improved feed efficiency in growing turkeys. The NADA is approved as of June 28, 2000, and the regulations in 21 CFR 558.95 and 558.355 are amended to reflect the approval.

In accordance with the freedom of information provisions of 21 CFR part 20 and 514.11(e)(2)(ii), a summary of safety and effectiveness data and information submitted to support approval of this application may be seen in the Dockets Management Branch (HFA-305), Food and Drug Administration, 5630 Fishers Lane, rm. 1061, Rockville, MD 20852, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The agency has determined under 21 CFR 25.33(a)(2) that this action is of a type that does not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. Therefore, neither an environmental assessment nor an environmental impact statement is required.

This rule does not meet the definition of “rule” in 5 U.S.C. 804(3)(A) because it is a rule of “particular applicability.” Therefore, it is not subject to the congressional review requirements in 5 U.S.C. 801-808.
