SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

FDA has found that the animal drug regulations do not reflect the approved caution statements that must appear on animal feeds containing monensin. The regulation in 21 CFR 558.355 is being amended to correct inaccurate references to mature turkeys and guinea fowl that were incorporated into the regulations in the Federal Register published on July 26, 2000 (65 FR 45879). This action is being taken to improve the accuracy of the regulations.

Publication of this document constitutes final action on these changes under the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553). Notice and public procedure are unnecessary because FDA is merely correcting nonsubstantive errors.

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.
