RE: United States v. American National Red Cross, Civil Action No. 93-0949 (JGP)

Dear Mr. McCurry:

By letter dated February 6, 2004, FDA informed the American National Red Cross (ARC) that it would be fined $450,000 for failing to submit a Program Management standard operating procedure adequate to bring ARC into compliance with the law and the Amended Consent Decree (Decree). ARC's appeal period for the imposition of this fine expired on February 26, 2004. Payment of this fine is due thirty days after the expiration of the appeal period, on March 29, 2004.

In accordance with paragraph IX.F.7. of the Decree, we are attaching instructions for electronic transfer of this payment to the United States Treasury. ARC must, contemporaneous with the electronic transfer, provide written notification to the FDA Director, Baltimore District and the Associate Commissioner of Regulatory Affair that payment has been made.

If you have any questions regarding this response, please contact me at (410) 779-5424.

Sincerely yours,

(signed) Lee Bowers
