SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Phibro Animal Health, 710 Rt. 46 East, suite 401, Fairfield, NJ 07004, filed NADA 141-211 that provides for the use of MECADOX (carbadox), approved under NADA 41-061, and TERRAMYCIN (oxytetracycline) Type A medicated articles, approved under NADA 95-143, to formulate two-way combination drug Type C medicated feeds for swine. The Type C medicated feeds are used for treatment of bacterial enteritis caused by Escherichia coli and Salmonella choleraesuis susceptible to oxytetracycline, for treatment of bacterial pneumonia caused by Pasteurella multocida susceptible to oxytetracycline; and for increased rate of weight gain and improved feed efficiency. The application is approved as of July 21, 2004, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 558.115 and 558.450 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 21 CFR 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 Division of Dockets Management (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.
