Dear Congressman Stokes:

Thank you for your letter of February 12, 1997, requesting that we contact [REDACTED TEXT (b7D)] who had written to you complaining that Frito-Lay is attempting to put him out of business by paying local companies not to carry his products.

The Department is aware of the concerns expressed by [REDACTED TEXT (b7D)] Since receiving your letter, lawyers in the Antitrust Division have spoken to [REDACTED TEXT (b7D)] regarding the allegations contained in his letter to you.

Thank you for your interest in this matter and in the enforcement of the antitrust laws.

Sincerely,


Joel I. Klein
