FDA chief Gottlieb warns online e-cig sales ban is ‘on the table’

US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) commissioner Scott Gottlieb indicated today that he is contemplating an online sales ban for e-cigarettes.

Reporters at a breakfast event in Washington quoted Gottlieb as saying an online sales ban is “on the table” and that the FDA is “very clearly looking at it”.

The agency has not responded to ECigIntelligence’s request for comment.

The bullish remarks are the latest move by Gottlieb to stiffen the FDA’s position against what it believes is alluring to youth.
