E-cig crackdown

The Jordan Food and Drug Administration (JFDA) has suspended the operations of 19 tobacco shops and shut down 41 unlicensed tobacco-selling establishments, in addition to confiscating dozens of pieces of e-cigarette equipment, reports The Jordan Times.

On May 19, Jordan’s Cabinet tasked the JFDA with monitoring and controlling the trade and sale of electronic and non-electronic tobacco-related commodities.

To date, the agency has seized 104 pieces of e-cigarette and e-arghileh equipment, Jordan’s News Agency, Petra, reported.

The JFDA additionally disposed of 470 packs of e-liquid that failed to meet the general quality, safety and production requirements and standards.
