Thank you for taking the time to contact us. The information you provide can help FDA to prevent children and adolescents from beginning to smoke, and help reduce the number of people who suffer illness or die from diseases associated with smoking cigarettes.
Effective September 22, 2009, cigarettes and their components, such as filters and papers, that contain certain characterizing flavors are considered adulterated under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, as amended by the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act. This means that it is now illegal to manufacture, distribute, sell or import into the United States cigarettes that contain characterizing flavors such as herb, spice or fruit flavors, including cinnamon, vanilla, chocolate, clove, strawberry, grape or cherry.
Smoking is the leading preventable cause of death in the United States. An important way to reduce the death and disease caused by smoking is to prevent children and adolescents from starting to smoke. Congress has stated that flavors make cigarettes more appealing to youth and often result in exposure to additional carcinogens and other toxic constituents. The removal from the market of cigarettes that contain certain characterizing flavors is an important step in FDA’s efforts to reduce the burden of illness and death caused by tobacco products.
