FDA Warns Juul About Marketing Tactics
FDA WARNS JUUL ABOUT MARKETING E-CIGARETTES AS SAFER ALTERNATIVE TO CIGARETTES
(CNN) – The FDA has warned e-cigarette maker Juul about illegally marketing its vaping products as a safer alternative to cigarettes.
Federal law states companies must show scientific evidence before marketing tobacco products as a better option.
Juul has 15 days to comply with the law or risk fines, seizures, or an injunction.
The warning comes as more deaths are being reported among a rising number of lung disease cases in the U.S. that could be due to vaping.
There have been five vaping-related deaths as the teen vaping epidemic continues to raise concerns in the medical community.
