Dear Mr. Craven,

This is in response to your February 26, 2018, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN) seeking copies of records related to INFO WARE LIFE SUPPLEMENTS, CAVEMAN, LIVING DEFENSE, ANTHROPLEX - CMPLNTS.

Attached are documents responsive to your request. Your request is granted in part. After a thorough review of the responsive records, we have determined that portions of the documents are exempt from disclosure under FOIA exemption (b)(6) of the FOIA 5 U.S.C. ยง 552, as amended and delineated below:

Exemption (b)(6) permits the withholding of information which, if released, would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy. In this case, it was determined that there is no countervailing public interest qualifying under the standard set forth, under exemption (b)(6), to release the personal identifying information of certain third parties.

CFSAN considers your request closed.

You have the right to appeal this determination. By filing an appeal, you preserve your rights under FOIA and give the agency a chance to review and reconsider your request and the agency's decision. Your appeal must be mailed within 90 days from the date of this response, to: Agency Chief FOIA Officer, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs, Room 729H, 200 Independence Avenue, S.W., Washington, DC 20201; e-mail FOIARequest@PSC.hhs.gov<mailto:FOIARequest@PSC.hhs.gov>.
