FDA Deadline for Vaping Products
13th October 2019
Reynolds American, a unit of British American Tobacco, submitted its e-cigarette product to the federal government for review ahead of market leader Juul Labs Inc. and NJOY Holdings Inc.
The FDA has given companies a deadline of May 2020 to submit any products they want to keep in stores past that date. That order came on the heels of President Trump’s announcement that U.S. health authorities will act to ban thousands of flavors used in e-cigarettes. The president made the declaration after a reported rise in the use of e-cigarettes by teens, which is a part of a national outbreak of vaping-related illnesses that has surged to about 1,300 cases, and at least 29 deaths. In July, a U.S. District Court judge in Maryland issued an order that requires makers of tobacco products — including e-cigarette makers — to file the applications by May 12, 2020.
