To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:
Any and all communications between CPSC and Fisher-Price, Delta Enterprise Corp., Graco, Keekaroo, and Summer Infant between the dates of November 1, 2018 and December 6, 2018.
I am a career journalist with work that has appeared at The Daily Beast among other publications. I am willing to pay any reasonable expenses associated with this request, however, as the purpose of the requested disclosure is in full conformity with the statutory requirements for a waiver of fees, I formally request such a waiver.
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
We received your December 6, 2018, FOIA request for all CPSC documents, and communications between CPSC and Fisher-Price, Delta Enterprise Corp., Graco, Keekaroo, and Summer Infant. The request, however, did not include the subject matters of the communications between these manufacturers nor does it include a product type . A proper request for records "must reasonably describe the records requested" by including search terms such as "dates, title, file designations, and other information which may help identify the records." 16 C.F.R. 1015.3(b). In cases where such information is lacking in a request, the requestor must clarify the search terms so that the request becomes manageable. See 16.C.F.R. 1015.3(c).
In your reply, please provide a subject matter and product type to narrow your request. If you need assistance in providing the requested information, please contact our FOIA Public Liaisons by email at Deborah Acosta, firstname.lastname@example.org or Lynn Carter, email@example.com or by phone at 301-504-7923. Thank you.

We have not received clarification regarding your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, number 19-F-00083 (see clarification request below). Please reply with clarification by COB February 6, 2019 or your request will be closed as no reply. If you do not reply with clarification by the deadline provided in this email and your request is closed, you are always welcome to submit a new FOIA request.

We regret that due to the recent lapse of appropriations our office was closed from December 22, 2018 to January 26, 2019, and FOIA staff was unable to process any new or pending requests and appeals during that time. The resulting backlog of new and pending requests will necessarily impact our processing times. We appreciate your patience as we work to remedy the delay. Thank you.
