FDA's Possible Maximum Nicotine Mandate Could Be Dangerous For Consumers
The Consumer Choice Center's Senior Fellow Jeff Stier criticized the move in his official submission to the FDA, stating that the FDA is seeking science to back up its policy, rather than crafting policy based on science. Stier explained "It seems that FDA is pushing a policy agenda and looking for science to support it. Shouldn't it be the other way around?"
"The agency needs to do a better job making sure consumers are fully informed about the differing risks of an emerging and diverse range of lower-risk nicotine products. In order for that to happen, the FDA, the Centers for Disease Control, local governments and leading public health organizations will have to correct the widespread misperceptions they have created about lower-risk products," said Stier
