FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Rochelle Hammond, Office of the Secretary, Consumer Product Safety Commission, Washington, DC 20207; telephone (301) 504–6833, e-mail rhammond@cpsc.gov. The Commission has received correspondence from Boston Billows, Inc. requesting that the Commission amend 16 C.F.R. 1500.18(a)(16)(i), to permit the use of banned infant pillows, such as the Boston Billow Nursing Pillow (Boston Pillow), when the pillow is designed, intended and promoted for a mother’s use during breastfeeding and when such pillows are requested by a pediatrician or a board certified lactation consultant. Boston Billows asserts such an amendment is necessary given the current use of the Boston Pillow in hospitals and by lactation consultants. In addition, Boston Billows states that due to the physical configuration of the Boston Pillow, it is unlikely that an infant could fall asleep on it in a position that would compromise the infant’s ability to breathe. The request for an amendment to the ban on infant pillows is docketed as petition number HP 05–1 under the Federal Hazardous Substances Act, 15 U.S.C. 1261–1278. Interested parties may obtain a copy of the petition by writing or calling the Office of the Secretary, Consumer Product Safety Commission, Washington, DC 20207; telephone (301) 504–0800. The petition is available on the CPSC Web site at www.cpsc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Dated: October 7, 2005. Todd A. Stevenson, Secretary, Consumer Product Safety Commission.
