See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 75 FR 15679 (March 30, 2010). The current deadline for the preliminary results of this review is October 31, 2010. AGENCY: Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires that the Department complete the preliminary results of an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the preliminary results to a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested. The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this review within the original time frame because comments from interested parties have necessitated the solicitation and subsequent analysis of additional information from all respondents: Xiamen International Trade & Industrial Co., Ltd.; Guangxi Jisheng Foods, Inc.; and Blue Field (Sichuan) Food Industrial Co., Ltd. This additional information covers a wide range of issues and is extensive. The Department requires additional time to gather and analyze the additional information. Thus, the Department finds it is not practicable to complete this review within the original time limit (i.e., October 31, 2010). Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results of this administrative review by 120 days (i.e., until February 28, 2011), in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2). We intend to issue the final results no later than 120 days after publication of the preliminary results notice. This extension is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act. Dated: October 7, 2010. Susan H. Kuhbach, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations.
