U.S. Senators urge FDA to ban e-cigarettes immediately

WASHINGTON, Sept 20 (Reuters) - A bipartisan group of U.S. senators on Friday urged the Food and Drug Administration to immediately remove all pod- and cartridge based e-cigarettes from the market until it can be proven the products are safe.

In a letter to Acting FDA Commissioner Ned Sharpless, Senators Dick Durbin, Lisa Murkowski, Jeff Merkley and Richard Blumenthal cited recent reports of 530 cases of vaping-related lung disease, as well as eight deaths, in asking for the ban. (Reporting by Chris Sanders Editing by Chris Reese)
