**SOLVED** Date format question

Does anyone know where the issue is in this/ The question is:

"Use a SINGLE date function to display today's date in the message. Use the following format: full month, day of the month with leading 0, comma and 4 digit year."

My answer is:

echo date("F d\, Y");

It's not accepted for some reason.

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