FDA rejects almost 1 million flavored e-cigarette, vaping products, orders removed from market

1 Mins read

On Thursday, the Food and Drug Administration announced that it denied applications for more than 946,000 flavored e-cigarettes and vaping products as part of a sweeping review.

While the agency ordered the removal of thousands of e-cigarettes, it has not yet decided on whether to allow vaping brand giant Juul to stay on the market, saying it needs more time to review the company’s products, The Associated Press reported.

The FDA said it was tasked with reviewing applications for more than 6.5 million new tobacco products, many already on the market, and has reviewed about 93% of applications. The thousands of rejected products lacked “sufficient evidence” that the benefit to adult smokers outweighed the public health threat of youth use of these new tobacco products.


“There’s more work to be done to complete our remaining reviews and ensure that we continue taking appropriate action to protect our nation’s youth from the dangers of all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes,” the agency said in a statement. According to the FDA, more than 80% of e-cigarette users are between 12 and 17.

Thursday signaled a court deadline for the FDA to issue decisions on marketing applications from Juul and other e-cigarette makers. A federal judge set the deadline after anti-tobacco groups had successfully sued the FDA to speed up its vaping review and e-cigarette products.

Companies that submit product applications for market approval must show that their e-cigarettes benefit public health, such as proving that they help adult smokers quit or reduce their smoking while not attracting youth.
