Public comments received during the comment period, August 7
– November 6, 2006, are provided here. Please note that the
comment letters are posted here as they were sent; USDA has not
changed the content of the letters. Posting the comment letters
does not imply endorsement or agreement with the contents on the
part of USDA. USDA also received multiple copies of the same
comment letter, e.g., the National WIC Association’s Stakeholder
letter. In cases where several copies of the same letter were
received, only one copy of the “form letter" has been posted.
Therefore, you may not find a copy of your individual letter.
Please note that FNS does not provide a response to comment
letters. In addition, FNS will not publish a separate analysis
of the comments that were received. However, the preamble of the
interim rule will include an analysis of the comments. FNS
anticipates publishing the interim WIC food package rule in the
fall of 2007.
