According to CBSNews.com, the FDA has recently banned flavored vape products that appeal to children.
Manufacturers will have 30 days to stop making and selling cartridge-based vaping devices, including mint, fruit, and dessert flavored e-cigarettes.
The ban does not apply to menthol or tobacco flavors. The ban also excludes “open systems” known as vape pens, which are e-cigarettes users manually fill with liquid.
The new rules focus on vaping products with pre-filled cartridges which could be easier to hide and use.
According to CBSNews.com, the FDA decided to ban only fruit, dessert, or mint flavors because teenagers strongly preferred those flavors compared to others.
