Warning Letters Issued to E-Cigarette Companies Illegally Making FDA-Related Claims

Posted on

The FDA recently issued warning letters to three different companies – Vaperz Ltd, Knoxville Vapor and Dr. K – for making FDA-related claims on their websites regarding their e-cigarette or e-liquid products for the first time.

The three companies each received a warning letter for  violations of Section 301(tt) of the Federal Food Drug & Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act), which prohibits companies from making certain statements or representations directed to consumers about tobacco products that, among other things, would mislead consumers into believing that the product is approved by the FDA, safe for use, and/or less harmful based on oversight or inspection by the FDA.
