Senators want stricter warnings on e-cigs

Six senators have written to the F.D.A. asking for stronger warnings on electronic cigarettes, explicitly saying that the devices contain nicotine.

Currently the F.D.A. plans to include a warning on e-cigarettes that reads, “This product contains nicotine derived from tobacco. Nicotine is an addictive chemical.” However, the senators would like a warning about the effects of nicotine, including stunting of adolescent brain development.

Democrats Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, Barbara Boxer of California, Sherrod Brown of Ohio, Richard J. Durbin of Illinois, Edward Markey of Massachusetts and Jack Reed of Rhode Island wrote the letter.
