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

uitting. The tobacco industry will continue to get away with these harmful practices until Congress ends the industry's regulatory exemption and passes legislation granting the FDA authority over tobacco products. Under this legislation, a government agency will finally have authority over what tobacco companies put in their products, how they market them, the health claims they make and what they disclose about their products' contents and impact on health.

On July 30, the U.S. House of Representatives approved this legislation by a vote of 326 to 102. There is also overwhelming support in the Senate, where the bill has 60 sponsors and several other senators who have indicated support. It is critical that Congress enact this bill into law at the earliest opportunity. Until Congress acts, kids and consumers will continue to be human guinea pigs in the tobacco industry's deadly experiments.

R.J. Reynolds' new products are being test-marketed in Columbus, Ohio, Portland, Oregon, and Indianapolis.
