SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Intervet, Inc., 56 Livingston Ave., Roseland, NJ 07068, filed a supplement to NADA 141-264 for use of NUFLOR (florfenicol) Antibiotic Type A Medicated Article for Swine by veterinary feed directive that provides for the manufacture of Type B medicated swine feeds. The supplemental NADA is approved as of May 13, 2010, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 558.4 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 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.
