Thank you for your email message.

You've got to be kidding with this response! Did you bother to read my message? Do you know that I sent you an web address that contains more than you probably want to know about this very serious matter?
...And why would you assume that I want to be your friend or offer you support? My recommendation is to truly read a letter that comes in first before you send out an automated lame response like this.
Oh, and the appropriate person at headquarters to address this issue is the C.E.O. of Pepsico, Inc. - Indra K. Nooyi. I'm not writing to you about a pepsi bottle that has a defective cap, I'm writing about a company you work for that is endangering thousands of citizens in Los Angeles.
Once again I'm gonna refer you to www.10801takesigndown.blogspot.com for all the details and then I suggest you move this letter to the front of the line unless you don't mind participating in a public relations nightmare.
FYI -- I will be forwarding you two letters that were already sent to Pepsico, Inc. I suggest you urge them to respond to our letters. Please don't send us another email with PR spin on it. We don't want to be your friend, we just want answers to our questions and to be assured that Pepsico, Inc. will not endanger lives with their advertising campaigns.
