SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

IVX Animal Health, Inc., 3915 South 48th Street Ter., St. Joseph, MO 64503, filed supplements to NADA 91-818 and NADA 94-170 for Phenylbutazone Tablets. The supplemental applications provide for revisions to warning statements on product labeling. The supplemental NADAs are approved as of January 17, 2008, and 21 CFR 520.1720a is amended to reflect the approval.

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

The agency has determined under 21 CFR 25.33(a)(1) that these actions are of a type that do 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.
