FDA threatens to pull new products from 21 e-cigarette companies 

The Food and Drug Administration is threatening to pull new e-cigarette products from shelves if the companies don’t prove they’re selling the items legally.

The FDA sent letters on Friday to 21 e-cigarette manufacturers requesting information to investigate whether they illegally introduced more than 40 new devices and nicotine liquids to the market without receiving agency approval.

Business units of Big Tobacco companies British American TobaccoImperial Brands and Japan Tobacco are among the manufacturers that received letters. Juul, the clear market leader, did not receive a letter because regulators already obtained the information during a recent surprise inspection of the company’s San Francisco headquarters.
