Dear Ms. Stanford:

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has completed an evaluation of your firm's corrective and preventive actions in response to our Warning Letter (WL) dated May 9, 2013. Based on our evaluation, it appears that your firm has adequately addressed the violations contained in this WL.

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, 21 U.S.C. § 321(h), and its implementing regulations. The FDA expects your firm to maintain compliance and this letter will not preclude any future regulatory action should violations be observed during a subsequent inspection or through other means.

Sincerely yours,


James Saviola, OD, CAPT USPHS
Director, Division of Bioresearch Monitoring
