Attached is the Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for this food-contact notification. When this notification becomes effective, the notifier's Environmental Assessment (EA) dated January 22, 2001, and this FONSI may be made available to the public. The EA should have pages 9-J and 9-K, that were submitted by the notifier on March 6, 2001, substituted for those same pages in the original EA. Please let me know if there is any change in the identity or use of the food-contact substance that would be inconsistent with the identity and use described in the FONSI.
