SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Sparhawk Laboratories, Inc., 12340 Santa Fe Trail Dr., Lenexa, KS 66215, filed ANADA 200-378 for the use of Neomycin Soluble Powder in cattle, swine, sheep, goats, and turkeys for the treatment and control of bacterial enteritis. Sparhawk Laboratories, Inc.'s Neomycin Soluble Powder is approved as a generic copy of NEOMIX 325 (neomycin sulfate) Soluble Powder, sponsored by Pharmacia & Upjohn Co., a Division of Pfizer, Inc., under NADA 11-315. The ANADA is approved as of August 31, 2006, and the regulations in 21 CFR 520.1484 and 520.1485 are amended to reflect the approval and a current format. The basis of approval is discussed in the freedom of information summary.

In addition, a label statement warning against the use of these products in calves to be processed for veal was not codified at the time supplemental NADAs or ANADAs for oral neomycin products were approved. At this time, FDA is amending the animal drug regulations to reflect required food safety warning statements.

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.

FDA 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.
