SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Fort Dodge Animal Health, A Division of Wyeth Holdings Corp., P.O. Box 1339, Fort Dodge, IA 50501, filed a supplement to NADA 33-373 for VETISULID (sulfachlorpyridazine sodium) Powder, approved for oral use in calves and swine for the treatment of diarrhea caused or complicated by Escherichia coli (colibacillosis). The supplemental NADA provides for a revised food safety warning statement for oral use of sulfachlorpyridazine in the milk or milk replacer of ruminating calves. The supplemental application is approved as of May 19, 2008, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 520.2200b to reflect the approval and a current format.

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.
