The supplemental NADA provides for use of the product for skeletal marking of finfish fry and fingerlings by immersion. The approval of this supplemental NADA relied on publicly available safety and effectiveness data contained in Public Master File (PMF) 5667, which were compiled under National Research Support Project-7 (NRSP-7), a national agricultural research program for obtaining clearances for use of new drugs in minor animal species and for special uses. The supplemental NADA also provides for the addition of statements to product labeling warning against the use of this product in drinking water of lactating dairy cattle. In addition, FDA has found that the regulations contain incorrect statements warning against the use of oxytetracycline soluble powder in calves intended for veal.
