FDA Continues Its Pursuit Of Illegal E-Cig Sales To Kids

  • Victoria Vasconcellos and Cignot Inc. (cignot.com)
  • Chris Hill and Reedhill Ventures LLC d/b/a Vape On Liquids (vapeonliquids.com)

Each website owner has 15 working days to provide the agency with a plan that will prevent sales to minors, and other violations of FDA regs, in the future.
