SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the Federal Register of May 20, 2002 (67

Sec. 73.125 Sodium copper chlorophyllin (21 CFR 73.125) to provide for

citrus-based dry beverage mixes.
    FDA gave interested persons until June 19, 2002, to file objections
or requests for a hearing. The agency received no objections or
requests for a hearing on the final rule. Therefore, FDA finds that the
effective date of the final rule that published in the Federal Register
of May 20, 2002, should be confirmed.
