The FDA temporarily suspends the ban on Juul e-cigarettes

The Food and Drug Administration on Tuesday imposed a temporary administrative stay on its order last month asking e-cigarette company Juul to pull its e-cigarette products off US shelves.

The agency said it was staying the original June 23 order to allow time for an additional review, but cautioned that the suspension only temporarily suspends the ban — it doesn’t lift it.

“The agency has determined that there are scientific issues specific to the JUUL application that warrant additional review,” the FDA said on Twitter.

However, the stay “does not constitute authorization to market, sell, or ship JUUL products,” the agency added.

The FDA issued a federal ban on Juul products in June because Juul’s parent company, Altria, had provided insufficient safety data.

The health authority said at the time that the vaping company’s applications “lacked sufficient evidence on the toxicological profile of the products to show that the marketing of the products would be appropriate to protect public health.”

The day after the ban, a federal appeals court granted a temporary stay of the FDA order while the court reviews the case. The temporary grace period is expected to last until at least July 12.
