In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, FDA has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance.
Substances Prohibited from Use in Animal Food or Feed; Animal Proteins Prohibited in Ruminant Feed—21 CFR 589.2000(e)(1)(iv) (OMB Control Number 0910-0339)—Extension
This information collection was established because epidemiological evidence gathered in the United Kingdom suggested that bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), a progressively degenerative central nervous system disease, is spread to ruminant animals by feeding protein derived from ruminants infected with BSE. That regulation places general requirements on persons that manufacture, blend, process, and distribute products that contain or may contain protein derived from mammalian tissue, and feeds made from such products.
In the Federal Register of December 4, 2006 (71 FR 70409), FDA published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the information collection provisions. No comments were received.
The respondents for this collection of information are manufacturers and or distributors of products that contain or may contain protein derived from mammalian tissues and feeds made from such products.
