The Wall Street Journal: FDA says Juul products can remain on the market while ban is appealed

United States

The Food and Drug Administration said it would allow Juul Labs Inc. to stay on the U.S. market while the e-cigarette maker appeals the agency’s ban on its products.

The FDA in June ordered the vaping company to pull its e-cigarettes off the U.S. market, saying Juul hadn’t submitted sufficient evidence that they were safe. A federal appeals court then granted Juul a temporary stay of the order, and Juul was asking the court for a longer stay to continue selling its e-cigarettes for the duration of the appeal process. Juul separately had asked the FDA to stay its own order pending the appeal.
