class=WordSection3>
A food-contact notification (FCN No. 1102), submitted by Albemarle Corporation, to provide for the safe use of 1,3-dibromo-5,5-dimethylhydantoin, as an antimicrobial in water used in meat processing for disinfecting pig, goat, and sheep carcasses and their parts and organs.
 
 
 
The Environmental Review Team 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, including an environmental assessment, dated June 22, 2011, in the notification submitted by the notifier, and other information known to the agency.
