As reported by Law360 (subscription), government officials have announced plans to ban the sale of flavored e-cigarettes in the wake of hundreds of reported injuries and at least five deaths relating to lung illnesses caused by vape use, with a special focus on injuries in teens and other young users.
In recent years, e-cigarettes have come under extreme criticism by former U.S. Food and Drug Administration commissioner Scott Gottlieb and public health advocates across the nation for contributing to a youth vaping epidemic.
The announced plan comes two days after the FDA targeted e-cigarette manufacturer Juul for allegedly marketing its products as a safer alternative to traditional tobacco cigarettes without the agency’s approval.
