Federal authorities yanked all of Juul’s e-cigarette products off the market on Thursday, grounding the once-booming Silicon Valley start-up that is largely credited with sparking the teenage vaping pandemic. They did this in response to “inconsistent and contradicting evidence” on safety.
The FDA, also known as, the Food and Drug Administration said that it was rejecting all of Juul’s requests to keep selling its e-cigarette gadget and prefilled cartridges with smoke and menthol tastes.
The government said that instead of focusing on teenage usage, the corporation did not give enough evidence showing the items were secure – for individuals of all ages.
Today, FDA issued marketing denial orders (MDOs) to JUUL Labs Inc. for all of their products currently marketed in the United States. As a result, the company must stop selling and distributing these products. https://t.co/wB1NlMaoep pic.twitter.com/h7JVMdl6XB
