FDA panel votes against smokeless tobacco safety claims
An FDA advisory panel voted April 10 that it does not agree with the evidence and claims put forward by smokeless tobacco manufacturer Swedish Match regarding its application to change warning labels on its tobacco product, called snus. Snus, pronounced snoose, is a cloth baggie with moist tobacco powder which users stick under their upper lip for a nicotine buzz. As TIME reported April 9, Swedish Match wants to remove the required warnings that say snus causes mouth cancer, gum disease and tooth loss, arguing that there isn't sufficient scientific evidence to support them.
