Dear Mr. Katsafados:

The United States Food and Drug Administration's Center for Tobacco Products has completed an evaluation of your corrective actions included in your email dated October 9, 2014, in response to our Warning Letter dated September 29, 2014. Based on our evaluation, it appears that you have addressed the violations contained in the Warning Letter. Specifically, you no longer offer for sale adulterated or misbranded tobacco products on http://www.katsafados.com and http://www.tropicalcigars.com to customers in the United States.

This letter does not relieve you or your firm from the responsibility of taking all necessary steps to ensure 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.
