R.J. Reynolds' New Smokeless Products Will Appeal to Children and Show Need for FDA Regulation of Tobacco Products
Date:10/8/2008

WASHINGTON, Oct. 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following statement of Matthew L. Myers was released today by the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids:

According to news reports, R.J. Reynolds has announced plans to test-market three new smokeless tobacco products that dissolve in the mouth, come in "fresh" and "mellow" flavors and have slick, colorful packaging similar to gum and candy.

Smokers concerned about their health should not be fooled by these new tobacco products and should utilize scientifically proven methods to help them quit, such as FDA-approved medications, telephone quitlines and counseling services.
