The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a warning letter to Eonsmoke, LLC (ES) notifying the company that nearly 100 flavored e-cigarette products do not have the required marketing authorization.
The letter states that the products cannot be legally sold in the United States, among other violations of the Tobacco Control Act. The warning letter also cites “the company for engaging in labeling, advertising, and/or other activities directed to consumers that explicitly and/or implicitly presented ENDS products sold or distributed by ES as having a lower risk of tobacco-related disease or as less harmful than other commercially marketed tobacco products,” according to an FDA release.
FDA’s warning letter additionally cites the company for the advertising of its products on its website and social media account, including social media posts on behalf of ES by well-known influencers, that do not include the required nicotine warning statement and for failing to submit the required ingredient listing information for their products to the agency.
FDA has requested a written response from ES within 15 working days informing the FDA of the specific actions taken to address the agency’s concerns, according to the release. Failure to correct violations may result in further action, such as seizure or injunction.
