RESPONSE to the FDA and Public Health Experts Findings on Electronic Cigarettes
Date:7/23/2009

LOS ANGELES, July 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Yesterday, the FDA announced that after laboratory analysis of electronic cigarette samples they have discovered that Electronic Cigarettes contain carcinogens and toxic chemicals. However, this does not ring true for U.S. based manufacturer, SmokeStik, LTD. The FDA report analyzed e-cigarettes cartridges and listed several compounds of concern, such as, Diethylene Glycol, Tobacco specific nitrosamines, Anabasine, and Myosmine. Independent lab results have shown that none of these compounds are present in SmokeStik products.

SmokeStik has released the following statement:

"As a company that is categorized in the 'e-cigarette' industry, SmokeStik is both aware and concerned about the FDA's findings released yesterday regarding electronic cigarettes. While we cannot speak specifically to the components of NJOY or Smoking Everywhere's cartridges, we do understand from public sources that these cartridges are imported from China. As many of our distributors are aware, as of last month, SmokeStik's cartridges are now made domestically. Moreover, all of the ingredients in SmokeStik's cartridges are certified by independent laboratories and most importantly; do NOT contain any of the carcinogens referenced in the Final Report on FDA Analyses.

SmokeStik has always presented its products as an 'alternative' for responsible, adult smokers, and not as a smoking cessation product. SmokeStik has NEVER sold flavored cartridges such as those referenced in the FDA's Report. As a company, we oppose this type of marketing and discourage teenagers from using our products."

If you would like to speak with SmokeStik, please contact Alexis Wallsh at Entertainment Fusion Group, alexis@efgpr.com or 310.432.0020.
