SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Elanco Animal Health, A Division of Eli Lilly & Co., Lilly Corporate Center, Indianapolis, IN 46285, filed a supplement to NADA 41-275 that provides for use of TYLAN 40 SULFA-G (tylosin phosphate and sulfamethazine) Elliptical Pellets, a Type A medicated article. The Start Printed Page 34185supplement provides for revision of an effectiveness claim and pathogen nomenclature. The supplemental NADA is approved as of May 8, 2008, and the regulations in 21 CFR 558.630 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.

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.
