The Food and Drug Administration's Center for Tobacco Products has completed an evaluation of the corrective actions in response to our Warning Letter dated January 3, 2013. Based on our evaluation, it appears that the violations contained in the Warning Letter have been addressed because the website, http://www.balicigar.com, is no longer operational.

This letter does not relieve you or your firm from the responsibility of taking all necessary steps to assure sustained compliance with the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and its implementing regulations or with other relevant legal authority. This letter also will not preclude any regulatory action should violations be observed in the future.
