The acting FDA Commissioner issued made the statement to staff
The Food and Drug Administration’s new acting commissioner said Tuesday that he’ll maintain the agency’s crackdown on youth vaping.
Acting FDA Commissioner Ned Sharpless used his first official remarks to staff to reassure them that he plans to “maintain FDA’s current course of action in every area and proceed full-speed ahead,” according to a copy of his remarks released by the agency.
Sharpless, 52, is the former director of the National Cancer Institute. He took over at the FDA after Scott Gottlieb stepped down from the top spot earlier this month. There had been some speculation that Gottlieb’s departure would ease pressure on e-cigarette makers such as Juul Labs Inc.
