Dear Ms. Natz:

Your request for reconsideration under the HHS/CDC Guidelines for Ensuring the Quality of Information Disseminated to the Public, submitted on behalf of the Formaldehyde Council, Inc., is still 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 August 8, 2010.

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