The deadline for PMTA applications has been moved to September 9, 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, the FDA has gone after certain products and vendors for selling unauthorized vaping supplies - supplies they say appeals to youth through product design or by promoting a product which helps them hide vaping. Ten companies were sent warning letters regarding their products.
The following companies received warnings due to marketing violations:
Products that were said to violate marketing restrictions included:
Along with the above products, three additional mods were mentioned in the FDA’s letter to Uwell - the popular Uwell Caliburn Pod Kit, Uwell Caliburn KOKO Kit, Uwell Yearn Pod System.
A majority of the products banned were not unfair targets. Compared to highschoolers, adult vapers will have very little use for a backpack that hides vaping. A fidget spinning device is simply the perfect way to make vape liquids expire faster.
However, it’s not clear why a majority of the Uwell mods were banned. One of the banned mods resembled a watch, but the FDA listed three additional mods. Unlike the other banned products, the Caliburn and Yearn Kits did not have individual images or text explaining the decision behind the ban.
All letters can be read on the FDA’s list of Warning Letters (Issuing Office is the “Center for Tobacco Products” and the Year is 2020).
