E-cigarettes are vapor-emitting devices that have grown into a multi-billion dollar industry in the US despite little research on their long-term effects, including whether they are helpful in helping smokers quit. They also prohibited certain retailers who had violations from selling tobacco products for specific periods of time.

Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids President Matthew Myers offered cautious praise for Gottlieb and the FDA, calling Wednesday's announcement "potentially the most important step FDA has taken to curtail youth use of e-cigarettes".
"I certainly am in possession of evidence that warrants that", Gottlieb said, without disclosing the evidence.
The steps announced Wednesday are just the initial elements of these new efforts, Gottlieb said.
Gottlieb called the action "historic" and said it was the largest coordinated enforcement effort in the agency's history.
