Sept. 10th: FDA Has Issued 168 PMTA Denials So Far

The day after announcing that, so far, no vaping products have been authorized for legal marketing, the FDA Center for Tobacco Products says it has issued Marketing Denial Orders (MDOs) to 168 manufacturers since Aug. 26. The denials cover nearly 1 million flavored products—mostly bottled e-liquid—for which Premarket Tobacco Applications (PMTAs) were submitted.

The agency announced in August that PMTAs for products in flavors other than tobacco and menthol would be denied if they don’t contain “sufficient product-specific scientific evidence to demonstrate enough of a benefit to adult smokers that would overcome the risk posed to youth.”

Many companies that received MDOs have other products—mostly tobacco- and menthol-flavored e-liquid— with PMTAs still being considered by the agency. Receiving an MDO does not mean a company will close.

Products with denied PMTAs must be removed from the market or manufacturers and sellers may be subject to further FDA enforcement. The FDA said yesterday that products “for which no application is pending, including, for example, those with a Marketing Denial Order and those for which no application was submitted, are among our highest enforcement priorities.”

However, the FDA admitted “that we are unable, as a practical matter, to take enforcement action against every illegally marketed tobacco product, and that we need to make the best use of Agency resources.”

Many e-liquid manufacturers have indicated they will continue selling flavored products reformulated with synthetic nicotine, which is a legal gray area. The FDA hasn’t yet attempted to take action against synthetic nicotine products, and may be unable to under its current authority.


List of Marketing Denial Orders (MDOs) through Sept. 10, 2021

The updated MDO list (reproduced below) only includes 124 manufacturers. The FDA says it has issued MDOs to 168 companies, but did not name the companies that received MDOs for products not currently being marketed to “protect confidential commercial information.”

Smokers created vaping without help from the tobacco industry or anti-smoking crusaders, and I believe vapers have the right to continue innovating to help themselves. My goal is to provide clear, honest information about the challenges vaping faces from lawmakers, regulators, and brokers of disinformation. I’m a member of the CASAA board, but my opinions aren’t necessarily CASAA’s, and vice versa. You can find me on Twitter @whycherrywhy
