Daily Rules, Proposed Rules, and Notices of the Federal Government
FDA issued the CGP entitled “Sec. 616.100 Streptomycin Residues in Cattle Tissues (CPG 7125.22)” on October 1, 1980. The CPG was issued because there were no published tolerances for residues of streptomycin in cattle tissue and the available data supported an action level of 2 part per million (ppm) streptomycin/dihydrostreptomycin
Since issuing this CPG, FDA has established tolerances for dihydrostreptomycin (59 FR 41976, August 16, 1994) and streptomycin (58 FR 47210, September 8, 1993). Tolerances are established for residues of dihydrostreptomycin in uncooked, edible tissues of cattle and swine of 2.0 ppm in kidney and 0.5 ppm in other tissues, and 0.125 ppm in milk. (See 21 CFR 556.200.) Tolerances are established for residues of streptomycin in uncooked, edible tissues of chickens, swine, and calves of 2.0 ppm in kidney, and 0.5 ppm in other tissues. (See 21 CFR 556.610.)
FDA is withdrawing CPG 7125.22, in its entirety, to eliminate obsolete compliance policy.
