Lead: Recently, the FDA issued a warning letter to Amarillo Snuff Company, a manufacturer of new tobacco products, accusing it of manufacturing, selling and distributing unauthorized non-tobacco nicotine products. At the same time, as a global seller of veehoo vapes, it is always committed to ensuring that its products are sold in compliance with regulations in various countries to protect the rights and safety of users.
On August 11, 2023, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning letter to Amarillo Snuff Company, sternly reprimanding it for the manufacture, sale and distribution of unauthorized non-tobacco nicotine products. These products include products made using corn husks instead of tobacco leaves, contain non-tobacco nicotine ingredients and are therefore regulated by the FDA.
“Last year, Congress clarified FDA’s authority to regulate tobacco products containing nicotine from any source, closing a loophole some companies have tried to evade,” said Brian King, Ph.D., public health director of the FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products. The authority over these products is clear, and FDA is committed to holding accountable those responsible for illegal products.”
The snus products mentioned in the warning letter lack the FDA’s marketing authorization, a necessary authorization required by the federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act for the legal sale of new tobacco products, an FDA news release said. To date, the FDA has not approved any non-tobacco nicotine products. Therefore, all non-tobacco nicotine products on the market are sold illegally.
FDA typically sends a warning letter when a first investigation or inspection reveals a violation. To achieve voluntary compliance, warning letter recipients have 15 business days to respond with the steps they will take to correct and prevent future violations. Failure to correct violations in a timely manner may result in additional FDA action such as injunctions, seizures, and/or civil monetary penalties.
“Most companies that received warning letters corrected their violations, but if they did not, the products would be subject to enforcement,” said Ann Simonau, director of CTP’s Office of Compliance and Enforcement. “FDA will continue to take enforcement actions, including injunctions and civil monetary penalties, as appropriate.”
It is understood that as of July 28, 2023, the FDA has issued nearly 600 warning letters to manufacturers of unauthorized tobacco products, of which more than 100 warning letters target unauthorized non-tobacco nicotine products. As for retailers, as of June 30, 2023, the FDA has issued more than 2,800 warning letters and 825 civil fines to retailers who sell vapes to minors.
