The FDA Ban on Flavored E-Cigarettes Is Still Being Debated

During a House hearing on Wednesday, the director of the Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Tobacco Products, Mitch Zeller, was questioned about the agency’s upcoming vaping policies.

The House Oversight and Reform Subcommittee on Economic and Consumer Policy on Wednesday, led by Chairman Raja Krishnamoorthi, grilled Zeller about the FDA’s delayed ban on flavored vape products.

“I cannot give you a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer,” said Zeller of the FDA’s suggested government policies, which have been delayed since President Trump promised an all-out ban in September. When Krishnamoorthi pressed Zeller about the FDA’s guidance to ban flavored e-cigarettes back in October, Zeller said he hasn’t been “directly involved in discussions” with the Administration.
