Dear Mr. Merges:

The Food and Drug Administration has completed an evaluation of your corrective actions in response to our Warning Letter (CMS Case #: 519383) on March 17, 2017.

Future FDA inspections and regulatory activities will further assess the adequacy and sustainability of these corrections.

The Agency expects you and 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.
