SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Sparhawk Laboratories, Inc., 12340 Santa Fe Trail Dr., Lenexa, KS 66215, filed ANADA 200-394 for the use of Gentamicin Sulfate Injection in piglets up to 3 days old for treatment of porcine colibacillosis caused by strains of Escherichia coli sensitive to gentamicin. Sparhawk Laboratories, Inc.'s Gentamicin Sulfate Injection is approved as a generic copy of Schering-Plough Animal Health Corp.'s GARACIN Piglet Injection, approved under NADA 103-037. The ANADA is approved as of November 17, 2006, and the regulations in 21 CFR 522.1044 are amended to reflect the approval and a current format. 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.

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.
