    I don't see anywhere about the time window for submitting comments. I have emailed CFSAC about this. Cfsac@hhs.gov

    I suggest people start on their comments after the FDA meeting, even if the dates for submission haven't been announced. There have been meetings where only one or two weeks notice was given. Sorry if this suggestion is annoying to my fellow procrastinators, or anyone else. : )
