SUMMARY: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is amending the animal

regulations are also being amended to reflect a change of sponsor, a 
change of sponsor's address, a revised food safety warning, the 
voluntary withdrawal of approval of an NADA, and a technical amendment. 
This technical amendment is being made to improve the accuracy of the 
regulations.

DATES: This rule is effective October 13, 2015, except for the 
amendment to 21 CFR 558.460, which is effective October 23, 2015.

    In addition, IMPAX Laboratories, Inc., 30831 Huntwood Ave., 
Hayward, CA 94544 has informed FDA that it has transferred ownership 
of, and all rights and interest in, ANADA 200-366 for NOVOCOX 
(carprofen sodium) Caplets to Putney, Inc., One Monument Square, suite 
400, Portland, ME 04101.

    Also, Pharmgate LLC, 161 North Franklin Turnpike, suite 2C, Ramsey, 
NJ 07446, has informed FDA that it has changed its address to 1015 
Ashes Dr., suite 102, Wilmington, NC 28405. Accordingly, 21 CFR 510.600 
is being amended to reflect this change.
    In addition, FDA is revising a human food safety warning for use of 
sulfamethazine soluble powder in pre-ruminating calves. FDA is also 
changing the drug labeler code for a generic dinoprost injection 
product in 21 CFR 522.690, which in error was omitted from a final rule 
changing sponsorship of an application (78 FR 17595, March 22, 2013). 
Also, the strength of lufenuron injectable suspension is also being 
amended to conform to the approved application. These technical 
amendments are being made to improve the accuracy of the regulations.
    In addition, Zoetis Inc., 333 Portage St., Kalamazoo, MI 49007 has 
requested that FDA withdraw approval of NADA 046-666 that provides for 
use of Type A medicated articles containing penicillin G procaine to 
manufacture medicated feeds administered to poultry and swine. This 
action is being taken at the sponsor's request because this product is 
no longer manufactured or marketed. Note this NADA was identified as 
being affected by Guidance for Industry (GFI) #213, ``New Animal Drugs 
and New Animal Drug Combination Products Administered in or on 
Medicated Feed or Drinking Water of 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 NADA 046-666, 
and all supplements and amendments thereto, is withdrawn, effective 
October 23, 2015. As provided in the regulatory text of this document, 
the animal drug regulations are amended to reflect this voluntary 
withdrawal of approval.
    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
