Elanco Animal Health, A Division of Eli Lilly & Co., Lilly Corporate Center, Indianapolis, IN 46285, filed a supplement to NADA 141-224 that provides for use of OPTAFLEXX (ractopamine hydrochloride), RUMENSIN (monensin USP), and TYLAN (tylosin phosphate) Type A medicated articles to make dry and liquid three-way combination medicated feeds for cattle fed in confinement for slaughter. The supplemental NADA provides for an increased level of monensin in combination Type C medicated feeds and a revision to bacterial pathogen nomenclature. The supplemental NADA is approved as of October 12, 2007, and the regulations in 21 CFR 558.500 are amended to reflect the approval.Start Printed Page 62571
