FDA threatens to buy new products from almost two dozen e-cigarette companies

E-cigarettes introduced after August 8, 2016 are expected to undergo the FDA review first to be placed on the market. Products that were already available would apply retroactively this year, but the FDA extended the deadline last year until 2022. New product features, formulations or flavors launched after August 8, 2016 may be in violation of the policy of the FDA.

This is the final step in the FDA's crackdown on the use of e-cigarettes by young people, whose officials say they have reached epidemic levels.

Possible actions include reversing the application extension by the FDA and marketing flavored e-cigarettes.

"Companies are up-to-date – the FDA will not allow the distribution of e-cigarettes or other tobacco products to be illegally marketed and outside of the agency's compliance policy, and we will take action quickly when companies comply with the law keep, Commissioner said Scott Gottlieb said in a statement.
