FDA bans Juul E-cigarette Products: Are E-Cigarettes really Safe? 

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration ordered Juul Labs Inc. to stop selling its vape devices and cartridges on Thursday, saying that there is “insufficient evidence to assess the potential toxicological risks” of using the products.

Juul disputed the FDA’s claims in a statement, and said the company plans to appeal the agency’s decision.

“We respectfully disagree with the FDA’s findings and decision and continue to believe we have provided sufficient information and data based on high-quality research to address all issues raised by the agency,” Joe Murillo, Juul’s chief regulatory officer, said in a statement.

The FDA, in its press release, directed smokers who want to quit to consider using other e-cigarette products the agency has authorized for use, such as R.J. Reynolds’ Vuse projects.

According to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report from last year, Vuse e-cigarettes were found to be nearly twice as popular among high schoolers who vape as Juul products.
