Parents, politicians and anti-tobacco advocates have wanted a ban on the Juul devices that are to blame for the rise in underage vaping. Today they got what they were wishing for. The Food and Drug Administration banned Juul E-Cigarettes from being sold in the US today by issuing marketing denial orders (MDOs) to Juul Labs. The FDA decided to ban the E-Cigarette giant After reviewing the company’s premarket tobacco product applications (PMTAs), the FDA determined that the applications lacked sufficient evidence regarding the toxicological profile of the products to demonstrate that marketing of the products would be appropriate for the protection of the public health. The FDA also mentions that Juul’s internal company studies have shown insufficient and conflicting data regarding genotoxicity and potentially harmful chemicals leaching from the company’s proprietary e-liquid pods.
The news of the ban has made some groups extremely happy such as the advocacy group PAVe, or Parents Against Vaping e-cigarettes. PAVe Released the fallowing statement after hearing about the ban of Juul products in the United States.
JUUL will finally be held accountable for creating the youth vaping epidemic, and igniting a new industry of highly-addictive flavored products that are harming millions of American kidsPAVe Founders Meredith Berkman and Dorian Fuhrman
Stores currently selling Juul E-Cigarettes must remove them. The MDOs issued today reflect the FDA’s determination that there is insufficient evidence to assess the potential toxicological risks of using the JUUL products.
