Looking for flame retardant free 4 person tent for car camping

What is the status of REI's flame retardant free tents? Do you have any 4 person flame retardant free tents for car camping? I'd gladly travel one hour to Pennsylvania to be able to buy a flame retardant free tent. 

I saw the 2020 posts which talked about greater fire retardant tent available "next year".

Hmmm...I don't see the Free Spirit on the Black Diamond website.

As of July 7, 2021, the Black Diamond website includes a product descriptions reading: "Complies to FR regulation CPAI-84" for the following tents:
MISSION 4P TENT
MISSION 3P TENT
MISSION 2P TENT
HILIGHT 3P TENT
HILIGHT 2P TENT
DISTANCE TENT WITH Z-POLES
DISTANCE TENT WITH ADAPTER


Some other tents do not include the language:
FIRSTLIGHT 3P TENT
FIRSTLIGHT 2P TENT
AHWAHNEE TENT
FITZROY TENT
ELDORADO TENT
BOMBSHELTER TENT

Not sure that means the first group of tents has flame retardants and the 2nd group does not or if they just excluded it from the description.

This is not clear and why we need more transparency here.

However there is a Diamond Brand Free Spirt tent.  The list from above (The Living Clean Guide to Less Toxic Camping Gear - Tents Without Flame Retardants) does include Diamond Brand.
