US FDA Permits Marketing of New Oral Tobacco Products through Premarket Tobacco Product Application Pathway
Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced it has authorized the marketing of four new oral tobacco products manufactured by U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company LLC under the brand name of Verve. Based on the FDA’s comprehensive review of available scientific evidence in the company’s premarket tobacco product applications (PMTAs), the agency determined the marketing of these products would be consistent with the statutory standard, “appropriate for the protection of the public health.” This includes a review of data showing that youth, nonsmokers and former smokers are unlikely to initiate or reinitiate tobacco use with these products. The four products are: Verve Discs Blue Mint, Verve Discs Green Mint, Verve Chews Blue Mint, and Verve Chews Green Mint.
