Dear Mr. Hessel:

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has completed an evaluation of your firm's corrective actions in response to the Warning Letter dated December 11, 2013. Based on the Agency's evaluation, it appears that your firm has addressed the violations contained in this Warning Letter. Future FDA inspections and regulatory activities will further assess the adequacy and sustainability of these corrections.

This letter does not relieve 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. The Agency expects your firm to maintain compliance and will continue to monitor your state of compliance. This letter will not preclude any future regulatory action should violations be observed during a subsequent inspection or through other means.
