Dear Mr. Nusrat:

The United States Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) Center for Tobacco Products has completed an evaluation of your corrective actions following the issuance of our Warning Letter dated November 13, 2014. Based on our evaluation, it appears that you have addressed the violations contained in the Warning Letter by no longer advertising misbranded tobacco products referenced in the Warning Letter on the website http://www.ucouponbookofsarasota.com.

We remind you that you are also required to follow all other applicable federal laws and regulations. For example, section 3(b)(3) of the Comprehensive Smokeless Tobacco Health Education Act of 1986 (15 U.S.C. § 4402), requires the quarterly rotation of warning label statements on advertising for each brand of smokeless tobacco. Quarterly rotation must be done in accordance with a plan submitted by the tobacco product manufacturer, importer, distributor, or retailer and approved by FDA.

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.


Sincerely,

/S/
