ACTION: Notice. SUMMARY: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is issuing an order under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act) debarring Adrian Vela for a period of 5 years from importing articles of food or offering such articles for importation into the United States. FDA bases this order on a finding that Mr. Vela was convicted of three felony counts under Federal law for conduct relating to the importation into the United States of an article of food. Mr. Vela was given notice of the proposed debarment and an opportunity to request a hearing within the timeframe prescribed by regulation. As of November 3, 2012 (30 days after receipt of the notice), Mr. Vela had not PO 00000 Frm 00041 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 responded. Mr. Vela’s failure to respond constitutes a waiver of his right to a hearing concerning this action. DATES: This order is effective March 5, 2013. ADDRESSES: Submit applications for termination of debarment to the Division of Dockets Management (HFA– 305), Food and Drug Administration, 5630 Fishers Lane, Rm. 1061, Rockville, MD 20852. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kenny Shade, Office of Regulatory Affairs, Food and Drug Administration, 12420 Parklawn Dr., Rockville, MD 20857, 301–796–4640. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background Section 306(b)(1)(C) of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 335a(b)(1)(C)) permits FDA to debar an individual from importing an article of food or offering such an article for import into the United States if FDA finds, as required by section 306(b)(3)(A) of the FD&C Act, that the individual has been convicted of a felony for conduct relating to the importation into the United States of any food. On November 21, 2011, Mr. Vela was convicted, as defined in section 306(l)(1)(B) of the FD&C Act, when the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida accepted his plea of guilty and entered judgment against him for the following offenses: One count of conspiracy to falsely label and misbrand food, in violation of 18 U.S.C. 371; one count of false labeling of seafood under the Lacey Act, in violation of 16 U.S.C. 3372(d)(2); and one count of misbranding food in violation of 21 U.S.C. 331(a). FDA’s finding that debarment is appropriate is based on the felony convictions referenced herein for conduct relating to the importation into the United States of any food. The factual basis for these convictions is as follows: As alleged in the criminal information filed against Mr. Vela, he was the operating manager and sole shareholder of Sea Food Center, a seafood wholesaler engaged in various aspects of purchasing, importing, processing, packing, selling, and exporting seafood products. Beginning on or about June 30, 2008, and continuing through on or about June 29, 2009, he knowingly combined, conspired, confederated, and agreed with his co-conspirators to commit an offense against the laws of the United States related to the importation of food. The purpose of the conspiracy was for Mr. Vela and his co-conspirators to unlawfully enrich themselves by E:\FR\FM\05MRN1.SGM 05MRN1
