FDA temporarily suspends order banning Juul cigarettes – Nashville-Davidson, Tennessee

The Food and Drug Administration issued an administrative stay under an order issued last month by vaping company Juul to withdraw e-cigarettes from the market.

The agency says it will temporarily suspend the marketing denial order while the stay is conducting further reviews, but will not revoke it. The FDA issued the first order on June 23 to ban the sale of Juul. The next day, the Federal Court of Appeals temporarily blocked the government’s ban.

The first FDA action was part of the authorities’ drastic efforts to bring scientific scrutiny to the multi-billion dollar e-cigarette industry after years of regulatory lag.

To stay on the market, businesses must show that their e-cigarettes benefit public health. In fact, that means that adult smokers who use them may quit or reduce smoking, and teens are less likely to get hooked on them.

The agency said Juul did not provide enough information to assess the potential health risks of e-cigarettes.
