FDA FLAVOR BAN

FDA Flavor Ban | Essence Vapor
 
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has recently opened a public comment period for the proposed regulation and potential ban of flavorings in tobacco products.  What does this mean for you as a consumer?  Well, if you’re like the 99.9% of us that enjoy vaping e-liquids that have flavoring in them, this means you have the opportunity to tell the FDA that flavorings are important in your e-liquids and don’t want to see a ban.  Essentially, this is your chance to fight legislation that could impede the success of this life-saving smoking cessation method.
 
Here’s the summary from the Federal Register: (https://www.federalregister.gov/d/2018-05655/p-3)
 
“The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is issuing this advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPRM) to obtain information related to the role that flavors play in tobacco products. Specifically, this ANPRM is seeking comments, data, research results, or other information about, among other things, how flavors attract youth to initiate tobacco product use and about whether and how certain flavors may help adult cigarette smokers reduce cigarette use and switch to potentially less harmful products. FDA is seeking this information to inform regulatory actions FDA might take with respect to tobacco products with flavors, under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act), as amended by the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (Tobacco Control Act). Potential regulatory actions include, but are not limited to, tobacco product standards and restrictions on sale and distribution of tobacco products with flavors.”
