According to the news from CSP daily news, recently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a number of rejection orders on the pre marketing application (PMTA) of tobacco products, but these documents only listed the names of the rejected companies and did not involve the specific products rejected.
In this regard, the American convenience store association (NACs) requires FDA to disclose the list of products rejected for sale. The association said that without a specific list, retailers would not know what products to take off the shelves. Moreover, the FDA’s review process of pre marketing applications for tobacco products (PMTA) must be transparent so that stakeholders in the tobacco industry can understand all specific products rejected and allowed to be sold.
However, the FDA said that retailers can contact product suppliers to understand the current sales authorization status of any tobacco products.
