SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Cephazone Pharma, LLC, 250 East Bonita Ave., Pomona, CA 91767, filed ANADA 200-420 that provides for use of Ceftiofur Sodium Sterile Powder, as an injectable solution, in dogs, horses, cattle, swine, day-old chickens, turkey poults, sheep, and goats as therapy for various bacterial infections. Cephazone Pharma, LLC's Ceftiofur Sodium Sterile Powder is approved as a generic copy of NAXCEL (ceftiofur sodium) Sterile Powder for Injection, sponsored by Pharmacia & Upjohn Co., a Division of Pfizer, Inc., under NADA 140-338. The ANADA is approved as of May 27, 2009, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 522.313c to reflect the approval.

In addition, Cephazone Pharma, LLC, has not been previously listed in the animal drug regulations as a sponsor of an approved application. Accordingly, 21 CFR 510.600(c) is being amended to add entries for this firm.

In accordance with the freedom of information provisions of 21 CFR part 20 and 21 CFR 514.11(e)(2)(ii), a summary of safety and effectiveness data and information submitted to support approval of this application may be seen in the Division of Dockets Management (HFA-305), Food and Drug Administration, 5630 Fishers Lane, rm. 1061, Rockville, MD 20852, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The agency has determined under 21 CFR 25.33 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.
