Written to Amy Marsh, President of EHN; keyed in by barb wilkie

Re: Docket No. 99P-1340/CP 1

Dear Ms. Marsh:

This refers to your citizen petition dated, May 7, 1999, and filed on May 11, 1999, under docket number 99P-1340/CP 1, requesting that appropriate warning statements be placed on the labeling of Calvin Klein's "Eternity" fragrance products because such products contain toxic fragrance components.

The purpose of this response is to advise you, in accordance with 21 CFR [section symbol] 10.30(e)(2), that we have not been able to reach a decision on your petition within the first 180 days of its receipt because of other Agency priorities and the limited availability of resources.

We will contact you again when our review of the petition has been completed, at which time we will inform you of the actions, if any, the Agency feels are appropriate in response to your petition. In the interim, you and other interested parties may continue to submit additional supplemental materials for Agency consideration to the Docket Number referenced above.

Sincerely yours,

[signed by John E. Bailey]
