SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

FDA has found that the regulation affirming as GRAS the use of ethyl alcohol containing ethyl acetate as a source of added energy in ruminant feed does not reflect the correct cross-reference to the regulations of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). This error was introduced when sections containing formulas for denatured alcohol and rum were removed and added by ATF in 1983 (48 FR 24672, June 2, 1983). At this time, the regulation is being amended in 21 CFR 584.200 to add the correct cross-reference. This action is being taken to improve the accuracy of the regulations.

Publication of this document constitutes final action on this change under the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553). Notice and public procedure are unnecessary because FDA is merely correcting a nonsubstantive error.

This rule does not meet the definition of “rule” in 5 U.S.C. 804(3)(A) because Start Printed Page 41620it is a rule of “particular applicability.” Therefore, it is not subject to the congressional review requirements in 5 U.S.C. 801-808.
