End Further Info End Preamble Start Supplemental Information


IVX Animal Health, Inc., 3915 South 48th Street Ter., St. Joseph, MO 64503, filed a supplement to NADA 65-498 for PEN BP-48 (penicillin G benzathine and penicillin G procaine) injectable suspension used for the treatment of animal diseases associated with several bacterial pathogens. The supplemental NADA provides for changing a bovine pathogen name from Corynebacterium pyogenes to Actinomyces pyogenes on product labeling. The supplemental NADA is approved as of February 22, 2008, and the regulations in 21 CFR 522.1696a are amended 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.

The agency 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.
