In recent weeks the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, has released a stack of formal warning letters to online sellers of tobacco and tobacco-related products who the agency alleges violate current FDA regulations. This week saw the release of 3 more official warnings.
The Briar Shoppe, Bill Scoggins and Diane Grace
Bill Scoggins and Diane Grace were warned earlier this month when their website, briarshoppe.squarespace.com, was warned for neglecting to carry FDA-required health warnings about smokeless tobacco’s addictive qualities, the fact that it is not a safe alternative to cigarettes and its known link to gum disease, tooth loss and oral cancers.
Abdul Wakeel and Ravenstorm AUA-Father Christmas Group
Abdul Wakeel was warned after his website, ravenstormaua.org, allegedly filled an order for a customer under the age of 18.
Southern Cloud Cartel LLC, Travis Karasek and Nakomah Hanson
Travis Karasek and Nakomah Hanson are also accused of selling to a minor. Their website is southerncloudcartel.com.
All the warned sellers were given the normal 15 working days to answer the FDA’s accusations and present a written plan detailing how they will avoid repeating the alleged violations in the future.
