CDC strongly supports FDA’s announcement today that it intends to finalize an enforcement policy that will clear non-tobacco-flavored e-cigarettes from the market. This is an important step in response to the epidemic of e-cigarette use among our Nation’s youth, and will help protect them from a lifetime of nicotine addiction and associated health risks. Clearing the market of non-tobacco-flavored products is important to reverse this alarming epidemic.

Any tobacco product use, including e-cigarettes, is unsafe for youth. Nicotine can harm the developing adolescent brain. We must do everything we can to reduce the use of e-cigarettes among middle and high school students.

–Robert R. Redfield, MD, CDC Director
