Alarm over the potentially harmful effects of e-cigarettes grew Tuesday, as Kansas reported its first vaping-related death, and Alabama and DE reported a total of eight new cases of vaping-related respiratory illnesses.

The other was sent to JUUL CEO Kevin Burns "to request documents and information. regarding JUUL's marketing, advertising, promotional, and education campaigns, as well as certain product development activity".

The agency said it issued a warning letter to JUUL Labs Inc. The Federal Trade Commission also is reportedly investigating the e-cigarette makers' marketing practices. Public health experts have said that Juul has largely propelled the rise, commanding about 75% of the e-cigarette market in the United States.

The FDA, an agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, protects the public health by assuring the safety, effectiveness, and security of human and veterinary drugs, vaccines and other biological products for human use, and medical devices.

After news of additional deaths spread on Friday, Durbin called on Sharpless to act on regulating e-cigarettes and flavors in the next 10 days.

"Common sense says if you do not know what you are smoking, don't smoke it, and right now we don't know what you are smoking in a lot of these vaping substances", the New York Democrat said.

Kelly Henning from Bloomberg Philanthropies and former youth e-cigarette user Phillip Fuhrman are live from NY to explain the action they're taking to address this public health crisis. The teens, who were in 9 grade at the time, said that to make the seminars a "safe space" where kids could speak openly, teachers are asked to leave the room. Specifically, the agency is looking for any scientific evidence or data that shows whether its use of words like "switch" and "alternative" give people the idea that Juul's e-cigarettes are less harmful than cigarettes. "The alternative for adult smokers".

Use of e-cigarettes has surged since they were introduced to the United States marketplace in 2007, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We remain committed to using all available tools to ensure that e-cigarettes and other tobacco products aren't being marketed or sold to kids. "No one product or company has been implicated", Kaplan and Richter continue.

HARRIS: The FDA warning letter cited that exchange as one example of illegal marketing of these nicotine delivery products.

The manufacturers, Smoking Everywhere and NJOY filed a federal lawsuit stating that e-cigarettes are not meant to treat withdrawal symptoms of nicotine addiction but for smoking enjoyment similar to traditional cigarettes. We are all working tirelessly to get as much information as possible about any products or substances used.

E-cigarettes have been under the Tobacco Control Act since August 2016, the FDA said.

The American Vaping Association estimates there are more than 500 manufacturers or importers registered with the FDA, but believes there are between 8,000 to 10,000 vaping or tobacco shops that feature e-cigarette products.

According to the FDA, even if Juul's products are found to be safer than cigarettes, the company still needed to demonstrate to the agency using scientific evidence to prove that fact.

The FDA considers youth vaping rates to be at "epidemic" levels. "In other communications, the company says it can not make claims its products are safer, in line with FDA regulations", write&n bsp; CNN's Jamie Gumbrecht and Jacqueline Howard.
