As E-Cigarette Poisoning Reports Rise, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Proposed Legislation Aimed at Preventing Child Poisonings from Electronic Cigarettes
Date:8/8/2014

New York, New York (PRWEB) August 08, 2014

As the Firm continues its investigation of serious health problems that may be attributable to the use of e-cigarettes (http://www.ecigregistry.com/ ), Bernstein Liebhard LLP notes that one Ohio lawmaker has proposed legislation that would subject these products to stricter regulation. According to a report from NewsNet 5 in Cleveland, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) is sponsoring The Child Nicotine Poisoning Prevention Act, which would make it illegal to market electronic cigarettes to children and require childproof packaging on containers of liquid nicotine or "e-juice”.*

“Concerns about the potentially harmful effects of e-cigarettes have grown in recent months, especially in regards to children. It is not surprising that lawmakers like Senator Brown have taken notice of this important public health issue,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs, medical devices and consumer products. The Firm urges anyone who was hospitalized for nicotine poisoning, pneumonia, heart attacks, strokes, atrial fibrillation, or congestive heart failure that may have been caused by electronic cigarettes to report their experience to its new E-Cigarette Registry as soon as possible.

Electronic Cigarette Regulation
During a news conference held by Senator Brown on July 28th to announce the new legislation, it was noted that Ohio poison control centers had already received some 100 calls this year that were related to accidental liquid nicotine poisonings. Only 20 such calls were logged in the state in 2013. Nationwide, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reported a total of 215 calls to poison control centers about liquid nicotine poisonings in February alone.*
