Germany to ban menthol e-liquids

Germany is to ban e-liquids containing menthol and many other flavors when it transposes the EU’s Tobacco Products Directive (TPD), according to a story by Barnaby Page for ECigIntelligence.

Germany’s list of prohibited ingredients – which is not a complete ban on all flavors – also includes vitamins or other additives that might give consumers the impression an e-cigarette has health benefits, and stimulants such as caffeine and taurine.

The TPD leaves decisions on electronic-cigarette flavorings up to individual member states.
