SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

FDA has found that the April 1, 2004, edition of the Code of Federal Regulations part 500 to 599 (21 CFR 500 to 599) does not reflect the feeding instructions for decoquinate in Type C medicated feeds for cattle and calves, including nonruminating veal calves, and for young sheep and young goats approved under NADA 39-417 (67 FR 72370, December 5, 2002). At this time, FDA is amending the regulations to correct this error in § 558.195. An inaccurate and unnecessary description of a Type B medicated feed is also being removed. These changes are being made to improve the accuracy of the regulations.

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.
