The Food and Drug Administration stopped up the trade of four cigarette brands, stating merchants will have to take them away from the shelves and informing the manufacturer, R.J. Reynolds, that they won’t be able to sell cigarettes any longer.

FDA made use of its new, limited power over tobacco products to state the four new brands don’t satisfy significant agreement.

The four products - Camel Crush Bold, Pall Mall Deep Set Recessed Filter, Pall Mall Deep Set Recessed Filter Menthol and Vantage Tech 13 cigarettes - are new products.

The FDA talked about Camel Crush which has a little capsule of menthol in the filter that’s new. After “considerable back and forth” R.J. Reynolds was ineffective is showing that the menthol capsule didn’t modify the product’s danger and didn’t change how smoker might view the brand. As for the Pall Mall products, the firm wouldn’t give FDA enough details about sweeteners and other flavors added to the cigarettes.

Merchants will have a month to get rid of the products, after which FDA says it can seize them.
