FDA warning letters sent to local retailers after alleged sales of e-cigarette products to minors

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has announced a series of enforcement actions related to the sale and marketing of e-cigarettes to children.

More than 1,300 warning letters and fines to retailers who illegally sold JUUL and other e-cigarette products to minors during a nationwide, undercover blitz of brick-and-mortar and online stores this past summer.

The local stores received warning letters are the Speedway on Lincolnway in Goshen, the Deep Food Mart on State Road 15 in Goshen and Karma on Miller Drive in Plymouth.

In addition, the FDA is requesting manufacturers provide plans for mitigating youth sales within 60 days and warns it may restrict flavored e-cigarettes to address the epidemic.
