PHP PHP Basics PHP on the Web Date Function

PHP code gives the correct output, but when checking the work it says it is incorrect.

<?php echo 'Today is ' . date('F d\, Y'); //Place your code below this comment

?>

Output is: Today is January 25, 2019

Checking the task returns:

Bummer: You have not passed the correct string for formatting. Your date SHOULD return: January 25, 2019

<?php
echo 'Today is ' . date('F d\, Y');
//Place your code below this comment

?>
