SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Pennfield Oil Co., 14040 Industrial Rd., Omaha, NE 68137, filed a supplement to ANADA 200-154 that provides for the use of PENNOXTM (oxytetracycline) 200 Injection as treatment for various bacterial diseases in cattle and swine. The supplemental ANADA provides for the subcutaneous administration of oxytetracycline injectable solution in beef cattle, nonlactating dairy cattle, and calves, including preruminating (veal) calves. The supplemental ANADA is approved as of January 12, 2001, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 522.1660 to reflect the approval. The basis of approval is discussed in the freedom of information summary.

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)(1) 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.

List of Subject in 21 CFR Part 522

Animal drugs.

Therefore, under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and under authority delegated to the Commissioner of Food and Drugs and redelegated to the Center for Veterinary Medicine, 21 CFR part 522 is amended as follows:
