Have you ever used or purchased a vaping product that advertised unproven health claims? According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”), certain vaping products claim to provide health benefits, such as “Fight off tumors and alleviate symptoms of chemotherapy!” or “Helps prevent a type of anemia called megaloblastic anemia that makes people tired and weak.”
However, these claims are unproven. The vaping products in fact may be “ineffective, a waste of money, unsafe, and may prevent or delay you from seeking an appropriate diagnosis and treatment from a health care professional.”
The FDA states in its press release that “Just because a product claims to be natural doesn’t necessarily mean it’s safe or free from hidden ingredients.” Consumers should know to consult their healthcare professional for medical advice rather than to rely on the claims made by vaping product companies.
The companies which may have made unproven health claims include:
– Eagle Energy USA, Inc. for their “Caffeine Pen” products
– NV Nutrition, LLC for their “Vaporizer” and “diffuser” products
– VitaCig, Inc. for its “VitaCig” products
– Vitamin Vape, Inc. for its “B12 VITAMINVAPE” products
– VitaStik, Inc. for its “VitaStik” products
