LAS VEGAS, NV–(Marketwire – Apr 26, 2011) – Smokefree Innotec, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SFIO), an established international distributor of e-cigarettes , echoed the good news today through its President and CEO Thomas Schroepfer
The federal agency said in a letter to stakeholders Monday that it intends to propose rule changes to treat e-cigarettes the same as traditional cigarettes and other tobacco products. The news is considered a victory for makers and distributors of the devices, which continue to gain popularity worldwide.”
On the advice of its attorneys in Washington, D.C., Smokefree has refrained from marketing its REAL e-cigarette in the United States pending such a pronouncement by the FDA, and now feels vindicated in its approach to be among only a few companies that have maintained full compliance with FDA regulations and directives, as it does around the world where its products are marketed.
George Roth, CFO, added, “With this ruling we feel Smokefree, along with many other e-cigarette companies, are victorious in the pursuit of our claims that such products are not drug delivery devices and not subject to FDA regulations as such. With SFIO’s unique patents we are prepared to comply with any regulation under tobacco laws in this country and abroad, and are ready now to aggressively attack the U.S. market with REAL, our novel vapor-less e-cigarette scheduled for introduction mid-May or earlier. We intend to be the leader in setting the standards for such smoke free e-cigarette products throughout the world.”
