CompanyGeneric and (Brand) NamesIndicationsRoutes/Remarks
Mallinckrodt Veterinary, Inc. (NADAs 34-266, 34-697, 139-858) and PM Resources, Inc. (NADA 43-215)Famphur -- Famix Famphur Type A article (for Type C Cattle Feed) (NADA 34-266), Warbex Famphur Cattle Pour-On/Bo-Anna Famphur Cattle Insecticide (NADA 34-697), Tramisol-X-Tra (Famphur/Levamisole) Cattle Anthelmintic and Ecoparasite Paste (NADA 139-858), and Purina Grub-Kill (Famphur) (NADA 43-215)CattleMEDICATED FEED/TOPICAL -- TOLERANCES. The animal drug regulations are amended to specify the tolerances for residues of famphur in cattle products. The residue tolerances were originally issued in FDA¹s regulations under tolerances and exemptions from tolerances for pesticide chemicals in or on raw agricultural commodities, and subsequently moved to the EPA regulations for residues of pesticides. Subsequent FDA NADA approvals with the same tolerances, instead of stating the tolerances, cross- reference EPA¹s regulations. This action is being taken because EPA has removed the tolerance from its regulations. Federal Register 10/23/97.
