Juul halts sales of mint e-cigarettes in response to ‘new research’

"These results are unacceptable and that is why we must reset the vapor category in the USA and earn the trust of society by working cooperatively with regulators, Attorneys General, public health officials, and other stakeholders to combat underage use", Crosthwaite said in a statement.

President Trump said on Friday that a final decision on vaping products will be issued next week.

"We're going the be coming out with a very important position on vaping".

"There's also, when you mention vaping you're talking about e-cigarettes you're talking about a lot of different things, but we're coming out with a big paper next week", he told reporters. Vaping advocates have argued they're a tool for adults smokers to quit combustible cigarettes, and vape shop owners have argued that limits on sales of flavors would destroy their businesses.

CNN reached out to FDA for an on-the-record comment about the President's remarks and was not provided one.

"These results are unacceptable and that is why we must reset the vapor category in the USA and earn the trust of society by working cooperatively with regulators, Attorneys General, public health officials and other stakeholders to combat underage use", K.C. Crosthwaite, CEO of Juul, said in a statement.

The vaping industry is facing unprecedented scrutiny amid a mysterious epidemic of lung conditions linked to e-cigarette use that has killed 39 and sickened more than 2,000 mostly young people in the USA in recent months.

Juul Labs will halt sales of its mint-flavored electronic cigarettes, the company announced Thursday.

But this report was published before sharp increases in popularity of vaping among young people. Studies published in the medical journal JAMA found that almost 60% of high school students who vape use Juul, the market leader, and mint was the most popular flavor among United States 10th and 12th graders. The researchers estimated of the 5.3 million high school and middle school students who now use e-cigarettes, 2.4 million of them use flavored e-cigarettes.

Juul has already said that they will stop selling their flavored pods, like mango and watermelon, in the U.S. With the additional removal of the mint, only the plain nicotine flavor is left.
