From 2021 through last Friday, the FDA said it sent out 550 warning letters to tobacco firms
The US Food and Drug Administration announced Wednesday that it has filed complaints against four makers of e-cigarette products, as the companies did not get authorization from the FDA to sell their products in the US market. This is the first time that the agency has filed what it calls a civil money penalty, or CMP, against e-cigarette makers who have not complied with the federal process.
From 2021 through last Friday, the FDA said it sent out 550 warning letters to tobacco firms, large and small, for making and selling products that are not authorized. A majority of the companies, the FDA said, have removed their products from the market.
The four companies that did not heed the FDA’s warning and are facing fines are BAM Group LLC, doing business as VapEscape; Great American Vapes LLC, doing business as Great American Vapes; The Vapor Corner Inc., doing business as Vapor Corner Inc., The Vapor Corner and Vapor Corner; and 13 Vapor Co. LLC, doing business as 13 Vapor. All four had previously been warned by the FDA that sales of their products were illegal. The companies apparently ignored the warning, and they are still making and selling e-cigarette liquids.
BAM Group LLC, Great American Vapes LLC, The Vapor Corner Inc and 13 Vapor Co LLC did not immediately respond to CNN’s request for comment.
