The FDA states that a review of the ecigcrib.com website revealed that the company “manufacture and offer for sale or distribution to customers in the United States e-liquid products without a marketing authorization order “including: E Cig Crib – Planet of the Grapes E Liquid and E Cig Crib – Cotton Candy E Liquid.” Nicoticket’s letter states the website “nicoticket.com revealed that you manufacture and offer for sale or distribution to customers in the United States e-liquid products without a marketing authorization order including: Nicoticket Wakonda and Nicoticket The Virus.” Bouji’s letter states that a review of “mastermixeliquid.com revealed that you manufacture and offer for sale or distribution to customers in the United States e-liquid products without a marketing authorization order including: MasterMix E-Liquid – Mango and MasterMix E-Liquid – Maraschino Cherry.”

The FDA also states that “the violations discussed in this letter do not necessarily constitute an exhaustive list” and companies should quickly address any products that violate the same rules as the product mentioned in the letter. “Your firm is a registered manufacturer with 1,433 products listed with FDA. It is your responsibility to ensure that your tobacco products comply with each applicable provision of the FD&C Act and FDA’s implementing regulations,” the letter states.

Bouji has over 31,500 products listed with FDA. Nicoticket is a registered manufacturer with over 6,800 products listed with FDA and E-cig Crib is a registered manufacturer with over 4,700 products listed with FDA.

Companies that receive warning letters from the FDA have to submit a written response to the letter within 15 working days from the date of receipt describing the company’s corrective actions, including the dates on which it discontinued the violative sale, and/or distribution of the products. They also require the company’s plan for maintaining compliance with the FD&C Act in the future.
