FDA Warns Company For Selling Unauthorized Non-Tobacco Nicotine Products

Agency has sent more than 100 similar warnings

The Food and Drug Administration warned Amarillo Snuff Co. for selling unauthorized smokeless nicotine products, including products made with corn husks instead of tobacco leaves.

The unauthorized products contain non-tobacco nicotine and fall under the FDA’s authority to regulate all tobacco products containing nicotine from any source, the agency said Friday.  

The FDA said in its letter to the Amarillo, Texas-based company that unauthorized smokeless nicotine products on Amarillo Snuff Co.’s website included Lemon Zest, Wintergreen and Vanilla. The company sells tobacco-free snuff and nicotine pouches, according to its website.

“Last year, Congress clarified FDA’s authority to regulate tobacco products containing nicotine from any source, which closed a loophole that several companies were using to try to evade regulation,” said Brian King, director of FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products. “Our authority over these products is clear, and FDA is committed to holding those responsible for illegal products accountable for their actions.”

In March 2022, President Joe Biden granted the FDA authority over tobacco products containing synthetic nicotine.
