Groups urge FDA to Prioritize Enforcement Against Illegal E-Vape Products


Last week, the Energy Marketers of America (EMA), along with Altria Client Services, Convenience Distribution Association (CDA), ITG Brands, LLC, JT International U.S.A., Inc., National Association of Tobacco Outlets (NATO), New England Convenience Store & Energy Marketers Association, Inc. (NECSEMA) and RAI Services Company, sent a letter to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to implore them to prioritize enforcement against illegal e-vapor products. The letter also urged the FDA to publish a clear and comprehensive list of e-vapor products to eliminate confusion and uncertainty in the marketplace. Although the FDA has provided a list of products with MDOs and a list of companies that received MDOs, those lists have not proven useful to EMA’s members who need to determine which products can and cannot be legally sold.
