If you received this notice, your statement of use has encountered a possible obstacle. The Examining Attorney has addressed this in an amendment, which you can accept or decline. If you disagree with the amendment, you can present arguments. If you agree with the amendment, you can ignore the notice and the amendment will be applied to your statement of use.
You may object to the amendment if you disagree with the items that have been amended by the examiner. However, typically an amendment by the examiner is a good thing, and will move the application forward toward registration. In many cases the examining attorney will have already contacted the applicant (or counsel) to discuss the amendment. However, the amendment must be issued so that it can be contested by the applicant if improper.
The USPTO does not issue reminders of the date to respond to an office action. Therefore, you must track the date and respond appropriately by the dat set forth in the examiner's amendment.
