FDA issues guidance on free samples, cigar warnings
from Convenience Store News
The Food and Drug Administration has issued guidance materials on two key regulations, cigar warning plans and the free sample ban, to help the tobacco industry navigate the regulatory landscape. The deeming rule — which went into effect on Aug. 8 — gave the agency the authority to regulate all tobacco products, including cigars, e-cigarettes, hookah tobacco, and pipe tobacco. Part of that requires companies to submit warning plans for cigars. To that end, the FDA recently issued guidance for the industry to comply with the requirement.
