ACCESSIBILITY - This form is compliant with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act. Interested persons are invited to submit written comments on the Notice. Comments should refer to "In the Matter of Mars, Inc. and VCA Inc., File No. 171-0057" to facilitate the organization of comments. A comment filed in paper form should include this reference both in the text and on the envelope, and should be mailed to Federal Trade Commission, Office of the Secretary, 600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Room CC-5610 (Annex D), Washington, DC 20580. If delivering via courier, please deliver to the following address: Federal Trade Commission, Office of the Secretary, Constitution Center, 400 Seventh Street, SW, Room 5610, Washington, DC 20024. The FTC is requesting that any comment filed in paper form be sent by courier or overnight service, if possible, because U.S. postal mail in the Washington area and at the Commission is subject to delay due to heightened security precautions. Moreover, because paper mail in the Washington area and at the Agency is subject to delay, please consider submitting your comments in electronic form. If, however, the comment contains any material for which confidential treatment is requested, it must be filed in paper form, and the first page of the document must be clearly labeled "Confidential."1

1 FTC Rule 4.2(d), 16 CFR 4.2(d). The comment must be accompanied by an explicit request for confidential treatment, including the factual and legal basis for the request, and must identify the specific portions of the comment to be withheld from the public record. The request will be granted or denied by the Commission's General Counsel, consistent with applicable law and the public interest. See FTC Rule 4.9(c), 16 CFR 4.9(c).
