SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Veterinary Specialties, Inc., 387 North Valley Ct., Barrington, IL 60010, has informed FDA that it has transferred ownership of, and all rights and interest in, NADA 65-107 for ENTROMYCIN (bacitracin methylene disalicylate and streptomycin sulfate) Powder to Alpharma Inc., One Executive Dr., Fort Lee, NJ 07024. Accordingly, the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 520.154b to reflect this change of sponsorship and a current format.

Following these changes of sponsorship, Veterinary Specialties, Inc., is no longer the sponsor of an approved application. Accordingly, 21 CFR 510.600(c) is being amended to remove the entries for Veterinary Specialties, Inc.

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.
