FDA issues warning to online seller of America's most popular nicotine vape, Elf Bar (EB Design)

In November 2023, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) ordered seven online sellers of nicotine vapes to stop selling them, citing dangers to young people's health.

The breakdown of the regulations is as follows:

  • Restrictions on six companies for selling Elf Bar (America's most popular nicotine vape, now renamed EB Design)
  • Restrictions on two companies for selling Cali Bar, a popular nicotine vape brand
  • Restrictions on one company for selling Bang Lava, a popular nicotine vape brand

Regarding this regulation, Brian Bryan, Director of Tobacco Products at the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration), said, "By strengthening FDA regulations on nicotine vapes, we can help promote the health of young people."

Elf Bar (EB Design) is the most popular nicotine vape brand among middle and high school students in the United States (according to the 2023 National Youth Tobacco Survey). However, at the same time, Elf Bar (EB Design) is also the nicotine vape brand most regulated by the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) . For example, in May 2023, the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) restricted the export of Elf Bar (EB Design) from China to the United States. In addition, in November 2023, the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) sought civil penalties of up to $19,192 (approximately 2.74 million yen) from 20 retailers that sold Elf Bar (EB Design).

The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has rejected millions of applications to market new tobacco products and has only approved six nicotine vape products, all of which are manufactured by three major companies: Logic (owned by Japan Tobacco), NJOY (owned by Altria Group, a major American tobacco company), and Vuse (owned by RJ Reynolds, a major American tobacco company).
