The FDA Is Considering Pulling Some Flavored E-Cigarettes From the Market to Fight 'Epidemic' of Youth Vaping
"We're seriously considering a policy change that would lead to the immediate removal of these flavored products from the market", Gottlieb said in a speech at FDA headquarters.
"The FDA may perchance perchance simply level-headed suddenly high-tail to manage flavored e-cigarettes, as an replacement of ready until 2022, because it is presently planning to function", Bloomberg said in a order.
USA health officials on Wednesday declared the teen use of e-cigarettes an epidemic and issued more than 1,300 warning letters and fines to entities related to the sale and marketing of e-cigarettes to minors.
Other studies have indicated that while e-cigarettes may have milder effects on the lungs, they are just as bad - if not worse - for the cardiovascular system, raising risks of heart disease and high blood pressure. As part of today's action, the agency sent an additional 12 warning letters to another 12 companies that continue to sell the products. "They must demonstrate that they're truly committed to keeping these new products out of the hands of kids and they must find a way to reverse this trend".
Millennials and hipsters beware, big government wants to come for your e-cigarettes if teenagers do not stop using them. And, you know, you've got to remember e-cigarettes - you know, they're thought to be safer than regular cigarettes, but they're not totally safe.
FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said in the press release that the "youth use of electronic cigarettes has reached an epidemic proportion".
Altria Group and British American Tobacco have gained the most intraday since 2008, rising as much as 7.7 percent and 6.9 percent, respectively.
"We won't allow the current trends in youth access and use to continue, even if it means putting limits in place that reduce adult uptake of these products", he said.
The commissioner said flavors play a key role in peaking teen interest.

Beyond that, vaping research and development is actually costing tobacco companies as they attempt to gain market share in the burgeoning industry, Lavery said.
The FDA's regulation of tobacco products has always been marked by twists and turns and years of debate. "We're going to have to take actions".
"There is no question that a lot of the youth use is being driven by Juul", Gottlieb said.
"Our mission is to improve the lives of adult smokers by providing them with a true alternative to combustible cigarettes". Under regulations finalized in 2016, manufacturers of e-cigarettes and liquid nicotine products that fuel the devices were supposed to file applications to the FDA by August of this year. Above that message is a link to the company's youth-prevention efforts. They noted the survey did not ask specifically about Juul, a sleek, heavily-marketed e-cigarette brand that exploded onto the market and accounts for 70 percent of US sales, according to analyst estimates.
The FDA requested that Juul and four other e-cigarette brands submit plans to "address widespread youth access and use of their products".
JUUL said Wednesday that it will work "proactively" with the and wants to be "part of the solution" in thwarting use among children, though it defended the merits of flavored e-cigarettes for other users. It was "the largest coordinated enforcement effort in the FDA's history", according to the agency.
Bottles of flavor packets for e-cigarettes stand displayed in a tobacco shop in New York on June 23, 2015.
Gottlieb recently began to ask whether the use of Juul and other similar products by kids is overshadowing any benefit to adult smokers using the devices to help them quit cigarettes.
The agency said it's a major concern because "the developing adolescent brain is particularly vulnerable to nicotine addiction".
