SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Purina Mills, Inc., P.O. Box 66812, St. Louis, MO 63166-6812 has requested that FDA withdraw approval of NADA 42-117 for Purina 6 Day Worm-Kill Concentrate (coumaphos) because the product is no longer manufactured or marketed.

In addition, Pharmacia & Upjohn Co., a Division of Pfizer, Inc., 235 East 42d St., New York, NY 10017 has requested that FDA withdraw approval of NADA 45-738 for use of LINCOMIX (lincomycin) and BONAID (buquinolate) single-ingredient Type A medicated articles to make two-way, combination drug Type C medicated broiler feed because buquinolate is no longer manufactured or marketed.

In a notice published elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register, FDA gave notice that approval of NADA 42-117 and NADA 45-738, and all supplements and amendments thereto, is withdrawn, effective May 17, 2010. As provided in the regulatory text of this document, the animal drug regulations are amended to reflect these withdrawals of approval.

In 1995, the approval of NADA 34 716 for BONAID Type A medicated article was voluntarily withdrawn (60 FR 37651, July 21, 1995) and approved conditions of use for buquinolate and all its approved combinations in 21 CFR 558.105, including combination with lincomycin under NADA 45-738, were removed (60 FR 39847, July 21, 1995). At this time, the tolerances for residues of buquinolate in edible products of chickens and its listing as a Category I drug in 21 CFR 558.4 are being removed.

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.
