  • Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued warning letters to 20 companies for continuing to unlawfully market electronic nicotine delivery system (ENDS) products that are the subject of Marketing Denial Orders (MDOs). These are the first warning letters issued for products subject to MDO determinations on their premarket tobacco product applications (PMTAs).
  • The FDA also issued warning letters today for the unlawful marketing of tobacco products to one company that received Refuse to File (RTF) determinations on their PMTA, one company that received RTF and MDO determinations on their PMTA, and six companies that did not submit any premarket applications.
  • Collectively, these 28 companies have listed a combined total of more than 600,000 products with the FDA.
  • As of Sept. 23, the FDA has issued a total of 323 MDOs, accounting for more than 1,167,000 flavored ENDS products.
  • The FDA will continue to prioritize enforcement against companies that market ENDS products without the required authorization–especially those products with a likelihood of youth use or initiation.

Hey Cromwell. How the hell are you?
I have been doing well. Has been nice to be retired during all the virus madness. Still vaping, even bought a couple more Pico Squeezes and Wasp Nanos a while back. Still using the same trustfire 2 bay charger I have been daily using for around 6 years now. Need to get another galloon of VG and then I will be set for another 3 years or so with vaping not needing anything. Maybe some more batteries in about 3 years?

Hello, Just saw this info and decided that everyone needed to know so they could plan accordingly and maybe learn to DIY if they do not already.
Thanks to this site, I DIY. As for the bulk of my vaping needs, strategies changed when it came to various purchases. I believe that is where the focus needs to be. Remember that vape mods were originally made from flashlights and assorted electronic stuff. You can still get some of that stuff to keep your gear functional. As for DIY supplies, the only thing that is hard to get now is nicotine. You don't need vape websites to get the PG, VG, or flavorings. Many newbies are totally unaware of this, so continue buying premixed juice.

Good batteries seem to be getting harder to get. I should be ok though as I vape 30W or thereabouts.
Getting premix juice except for tobacco and menthol will soon become quite difficult to get.
If you do not DIY then learn is my message to newbies and those who have not yet learned.

Hi there bud, great to hear from you again. Hope you and The Missus are doing well. I've been fortunate enough to have been able to work at home through this whole Covid mess - haven't been to the office in nearly two years now, and that's been fine by me.

Hope you'll stick around and chat from time to time. I've missed you!
