Finding of No Significant Impact

A food contact notification (FCN No. 357), submitted by Albemarle Corporation, to provide for the safe use of 1,3-dibromo-5,5-dimethylhydantoin as an antimicrobial in water applied to poultry via an Inside-Outside Bird Washer (IOBW) and in water used for Off-Line Reprocessing (OLR) of poultry, at a level not to exceed that needed to provide the equivalent of 100 parts per million (ppm) of available bromine in the IOBW and OLR water.

The Environmental Review Group has determined that allowing this notification to become effective will not significantly affect the quality of the human environment and therefore will not require the preparation of an environmental impact statement. This finding is based on information submitted by the notifier in an environmental assessment dated July 15, 2003.
