    Elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register, FDA gave notice 
that approval of NADA 100-556 and ANADAs 200-435, 200-446, and 200-459, 
and all supplements and amendments thereto, is withdrawn, effective 
October 15, 2012. As provided in the regulatory text of this document, 
the animal drug regulations are amended to reflect these voluntary 
withdrawals of approval.
    Following these withdrawals of approval, Modern Veterinary 
Therapeutics, LLC, and Springfield Milling Corp. will no longer be the 
sponsor of an approved application. Accordingly, 21 CFR 510.600(c) is 
being amended to remove the entries for these firms.
    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.
