Right in the middle of the great American Crisis that Joe Biden has created. He once again started waging war on several American companies for no reason, leaving thousands of American jobs at stake.
Joe Biden shifted his focus on the tobacco industry while Gas prices are soaring, and high inflation rates are crushing Americans on daily basis.
On Thursday, Biden’s FDA ordered Juul to stop selling e-cigarettes and four types of pods.
Here’s what Michele Mital, acting director of the FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products, said in a statement:
“The FDA is tasked with ensuring that tobacco products sold in this country meet the standard set by the law, but the responsibility to demonstrate that a product meets those standards ultimately falls on the shoulders of the company.”
“As with all manufacturers, JUUL had the opportunity to provide evidence demonstrating that the marketing of their products meets these standards. However, the company did not provide that evidence and instead left us with significant questions. Without the data needed to determine relevant health risks, the FDA is issuing these marketing denial orders.”
More details of this report from NBC News:
The Food and Drug Administration has ordered Juul to stop selling its e-cigarette products and remove them from store shelves, citing a lack of data and evidence to assess their potential health risks.
Under the FDA order, Juul must stop selling and distributing its e-cigarette device, along with four types of Juul pods, which come in Virginia tobacco and menthol flavors.
The order does not prevent consumers from possessing or using Juul products.
So far, the FDA has not found evidence that the e-cigarettes or pods pose an immediate health threat. However, the agency said there was “insufficient and conflicting data” about the products’ toxicity and about “potentially harmful chemicals leaching from the company’s proprietary e-liquid pods.”
Biden’s FDA has taken an inconsistent approach toward products similar to Juul. Last month, the agency gave marketing approval to a less-popular device marketed under the brand name Vuse by tobacco company R.J. Reynolds. And many vape shops in cities sell unapproved brands that aren’t as well-known.
Former President Donald Trump at points resisted the guidance of health bureaucrats seeking to rein in vaping.
In late 2019, Trump even moderated a free-wheeling debate in the White House Cabinet Room between pro-restriction advocates including Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), and pro-vaping advocates including Conley.
