E-cigarette maker Juul Labs says it will suspend sales of its mango, creme, fruit and cucumber flavored products. Last month, the company said it was suspending all broadcast, print and digital product advertising in the United States.
A Juul spokesperson told NPR, “We agree that no youth should use Juul products and we are committed to combating underage use.” Several states have banned flavored e-cigarette products, and the Trump administration has indicated it is considering a federal ban.
The company will continue to sell tobacco, mint and menthol flavors online, according to NBC News. In a statement, Matthew Myers, President of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, said, “Juul’s announcement today that it is leaving mint and menthol flavors on the market shows that it hasn’t changed one bit under its new leadership and isn’t serious about preventing youth use.”
