End Further Info End Preamble Start Supplemental Information


Intervet Inc., P.O. Box 318, 29160 Intervet Lane, Start Printed Page 66046Millsboro, DE 19966, filed a supplement to NADA 131-675 for use of SAFE-GUARD (fenbendazole) 20% Type A medicated article to formulate Type B and Type C medicated horse feeds. The supplemental NADA provides for a revised food safety warning on labeling. The supplemental NADA is approved as of November 5, 2007, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 558.258 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.
