(3) If manufacturers discover duplicate cards, or we or another licensee notify them of duplicate cards, they must immediately:
(a) Stop marketing the product line containing duplicate cards; and
(b) Recall all sets and collations of packets or books containing duplicate cards at the same page level; and
(c) Take steps to correct manufacturing or collating processes to ensure they do not sell duplicate cards to operators, and inform us in writing about the steps taken; and
