“These products should never be marketed to, sold to or used by kids, and it’s critical that we take aggressive steps to address the youth use of these products. This includes taking a hard look at whether certain design features and product marketing practices are fueling the youth use of such products,” FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb (pictured) said. “We’ll explore all of our regulatory options, including enforcement actions, based on what we learn from the information these manufacturers are required to provide.”
There is no deadline or estimated time frame for such regulatory actions.
