  Food-Producing Animals: Recommendations for Drug Sponsors for
  Voluntarily Aligning Product Use Conditions with GFI #209,'' December
  2013.

    Elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register, FDA gave notice 
that approval of NADAs 012-548, 013-162, 013-388, 015-166, 127-507, 
141-640, 141-170, and 141-198, and all supplements and amendments 
thereto, is withdrawn, effective September 8, 2016. As provided in the 
regulatory text of this document, the animal drug regulations are 
amended to reflect these voluntary withdrawals of approval.

[[Page 59133]]

IV. Technical Amendments

    FDA has noticed that a drug labeler code in 21 CFR 520.2325a does 
not accurately reflect the sponsorship of a new animal drug 
application. At this time, we are amending this section. This action is 
being taken to improve the accuracy of the regulations.
    Also, ConAgra Pet Products Co., 3902 Leavenworth St., Omaha, NE 
68105 has informed FDA that it is changing its name and address to 
Sergeant's Pet Care Products, Inc., 10077 S. 134th St., Omaha, NE 
68138.
    Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Inc., 33 Hayden Ave., Lexington, MA 02421 
has informed FDA that it has changed its address to 100 College St., 
New Haven, CT 06510. At this time, this firm is being added to the list 
of sponsors of approved application in 21 CFR 510.600(c) which we had 
not done previously.
    FDA has noticed that the maximum concentration of sulfadimethoxine 
with ormetoprim in 2-way, fixed-ratio combination drug Type B medicated 
feeds in 21 CFR 558.4 was amended in error. At this time, we are 
revising this section to provide for appropriate concentrations in Type 
B medicated feeds for salmonids and catfish. This action is being taken 
to improve the accuracy of the regulations.
    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.

List of Subjects
