SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Luitpold Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Animal Health Division, Shirley, NY 11967, filed a supplement to NADA 140-958 that provides for use of EQUIPHEN (phenylbutazone) Paste in horses for relief of inflammatory conditions associated with the musculoskeletal system. The supplemental NADA provides for a revised human food safety warning on product labeling. The supplemental NADA is approved as of September 26, 2007, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 520.1720c to reflect the approval.

Approval of this supplemental NADA did not require review of additional safety or effectiveness data or information. Therefore, a freedom of information summary is not required.

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.
