Dear Mr. Bakst:

Your request for reconsideration of our response to your information quality request for correction under the HHS/CDC Guidelines for Ensuring the Quality of Information Disseminated to the Public is under review. While our goal is to respond within 60 days to such requests, we are unable to do so in this case. We anticipate that a response will be forwarded to you by May 13, 2015.

Thank you for your interest in the quality of information disseminated by CDC.
