Permanent Injunctions Sought Against E-Cigarette Manufacturers

DOJ and FDA pursue violations of an act regarding premarket applications.

The Department of Justice has filed a claim on behalf of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), alleging that six e-cigarette manufacturers failed to submit premarket applications for their products to the FDA. Premarket applications are required through the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic (FD&C) Act, and this lawsuit is the first time the FDA has gone through legal proceedings to uphold the act for new tobacco products.

“Today’s enforcement actions represent a significant step for the FDA in preventing tobacco product manufacturers from violating the law,” said Director Brian King of the FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products. “We will not stand by as manufacturers repeatedly break the law, especially after being afforded multiple opportunities to comply.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Director King as his agency seeks to enforce federal regulations regarding tobacco.
  • For Commissioner Robert Califf to seek God’s guidance as he heads the Food and Drug Administration.
  • For Attorney General Garland to be prudent in his focus for the Justice Department.
