FDA to ban fruity e-cigarette pod flavors, but allow tank vaping systems Looks like this latest ban discussion has led to pre-filled pods of fruit flavors will be banned. And that’s about it for now. With evaluation continuing for an open door to return those flavors. It’s being said that for open systems, that market of shops, stores, flavors, will continue unchanged. In a give/take scenario, I’d say a win for vaping.
