The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued warning letters to five electronic cigarette distributors, according to a New York Injury Lawyer. They were cited for various violations of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, or FDCA, including unsubstantiated claims and poor manufacturing practices.
The FDA also issued a letter to the Electronic Cigarette Association, stating that the Administration wants to regular electronic cigarettes and other related products as a matter of public health.
“FDA invites electronic cigarette firms to work in cooperation with the agency toward the goal of assuring that electronic cigarettes sold in the United States are lawfully marketed,” the letter read in part, according to a New York Injury Lawyer.
FDA has determined that some of the substances in electronic cigarettes are subject to regulation as drugs, which means they must hold to a standard of testing before claiming to treat or mitigate any disease, such as nicotine addiction.
Some companies received letters for reasons other than regulatory. One company markets drugs in an unapproved liquid form, such as tadalfil, which is a drug for erectile dysfunction, and rimonabant, which is a weight loss drug that his not been approved in the United States. These liquid drugs are used to refill the cartridges used in electronic cigarettes. They are vaporized and inhaled.
There are a great many laws that govern the manufacture and distribution of drugs, and with good reason. Someone could suffer greatly from an untested pharmaceutical product.
