    Shares in tobacco companies surged yesterday after the FDA threatened to pull flavored e-cigarette products from shelves in 60 days if “widespread” teen use isn’t tackled. Altria shares rose more than 6% in their best day since November 2008 while Philip Morris International shares increased by around 3% and British American Tobacco stocks increased almost 6%. The increase came after the FDA announced that it was ordering the five largest e-cigarette manufacturers to submit plans on how they will prevent teens from using their products.

    ‘Kid Friendly’ E-liquids Withdrawn From Sale

    The makers and distributors of some popular e-liquids, including One Mad Hit Juice Box, V’Nilla Cookies & Milk and Unicorn Cakes, have withdrawn products from sale, following warnings from the FDA and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Last week, the FDA announced that 17 companies had agreed to take products off the market, because they were packaged or advertised as ‘child-friendly' food products like juice boxes and candies. “When companies market these products using imagery that misleads a child into thinking they’re things they’ve consumed before, like a juice box or candy, that can create an imminent risk of harm,”...

    Senators Introduce Bill to Ban Flavors

    Senate Minority Whip Richard J. Durbin has teamed up with Senator Lisa Mirkowski, a Republican, to launch a new offensive on e-liquid flavors.

Arguing that e-cigarettes were part of a Big Tobacco ploy to get a new generation of kids hooked on nicotine, Durbin’s bill would require manufacturers to prove that flavorings aren’t harmful, don’t tempt kids into using nicotine and help adults quit. Manufacturers would have to one year to provide such evidence to the FDA. “We have made great progress in convincing kids...

    FDA Flavor Ban Site Spammed with 255,000 Fake Comments

    Anti-vaping spammers posted more than a quarter of a million comments on the FDA’s public flavor ban consultation in one weekend last month.

    Ban Francisco: Reaction to the San Francisco Flavor Ban

    This week, San Francisco voted to uphold a ban on flavored vape juice and other flavored tobacco products. The public ballot could lead to more vape restrictions applied across the United States. Almost 70% voted in favor of ‘Proposition E’ after the city’s Board of Supervisors first approved a flavor ban last year. The ban includes all flavored e-liquids, menthol cigarettes and flavored cigars. It has been labelled one of the strictest local regulations anywhere in the western world. Several anti-tobacco interest groups and health bodies supported the flavor ban, claiming that bright packaging may encourage kids to start using tobacco. Vaping advocates...
