On July 15, according to foreign reports, the puff bar, a one-time popular e-cigarette from Shenzhen, will be suspended from sales in the United States, but other international sales will continue.
Because Juul labs stopped using some of its flavoring products, the California based e-cigarette company was recently censored because it replaced Juul as the preferred e-cigarette for young people.
Puff bar has more than 20 flavors, including Pina cola and pink lemonade. Although the trump administration earlier this year banned the use of fruit, mint and dessert flavors in refillable pop-up e-cigarettes such as Juul, it exempted disposable e-cigarette brands.
The puff bar, launched last year, has been a major beneficiary of the vulnerability. Juul’s business, by contrast, has shrunk as it restricted the sale of tobacco and menthol varieties in the United States last fall.
When the FDA began to regulate e-cigarettes, it allowed the continued sale of products put on the market before August 8, 2016, pending review by the relevant agencies. Since puff bar was launched after that date, the agency should have the right to remove it even if it is a disposable product, even if the FDA cannot prove that the company is targeting young people.
The exception is that if the puff bar has been sold under another name or other company before August 8, 2016, it may continue to be sold during the period under review.
The background of puff bar is still unknown.
For example, according to fairwarning, it is not clear who owns the company.
Patrick Beltran is the chief financial officer and Nick Minas is the chief executive, according to a document submitted by the company to the California Secretary of state, but both said they were only responsible for operating the company’s website, despite their senior positions.
Although U.S. sales have been suspended indefinitely, puff bar products are still available on other e-commerce sites, such as eliquidstop owned by Minas and Beltran.
