Dear Mr. Carey:

The United States Food and Drug Administration's Center for Tobacco Products has completed an evaluation of the corrective actions described in your letter dated April 22, 2015, in response to our Warning Letter dated April 6, 2015. Based on our evaluation of your website, http://www.wholeleaftobacco.com, it appears that you have addressed the violations contained in the Warning Letter by no longer offering for sale adulterated tobacco products to customers in the United States.

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.
