We have spoken many times about counterfeit hardware and low level distributors. However, counterfeit vapor liquid is equally as troubling.
“Many counterfeit, unapproved or unauthorized products are likely produced in unregulated facilities with unverified ingredients posing a serious health concern to consumers."
Last month, December 2020, a joint operation seized 33,681 units, valued at over $719,453 in 42 separate shipments arriving from China destined to various Texas counties.
The seizure were replicas of Puff Bar products.
In July 2020, the FDA issued a warning letter to Cool Clouds Distribution Inc. (doing business as Puff Bar), to remove their flavored disposable e-cigarettes from the marketplace.
It is our guess that the items seized were heading to various low level distributors that smaller stores utilize. In fiscal year 2020, CBP seized 93,590 units of e-cigarettes that did not meet U.S. federal regulations. Read more from the FDA here.
