“Today’s action is further progress on the FDA’s commitment to ensuring that all e-cigarette and electronic nicotine delivery system products currently being marketed to consumers meet our public health standards,” said FDA Commissioner Robert M. Califf in Thursday’s announcement to ban JUUL’s products.
“The agency has dedicated significant resources to review products from the companies that account for most of the U.S. market. We recognize these make up a significant part of the available products and many have played a disproportionate role in the rise in youth vaping,” he added.

The new move will allow the company time to create a plan in an effort to salvage the company against the FDA’s abrupt move.
If its legal efforts do not work, JUUL may soon become a fad of the past as another company takes a hit during the Biden administration.
