Smoke-Free Alternatives Trade Association (SFATA) Comments Regarding Senator Nelson's Bill on Child-Resistant Packaging for E-Liquid Used in Vapor Products

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - Jul 11, 2014) - SFATA, the largest trade organization dedicated to the advocacy, education, and reputation of the vapor products industry, supports commonsense solutions to avoid e-liquid being used in ways that are not intended, including a requirement for child-resistant packaging. SFATA favors child-resistant packaging and mandatory use labeling -- such as keep out of reach of minors -- to guard against accidental ingestion of nicotine-containing e-liquids used in electronic vapor products.

"Though the incidence of accidental use of e-liquid is very low in comparison to many other common household goods, it simply makes sense to minimize the chance of accidental consumption by having mandated safety caps on e-liquids," commented Cynthia Cabrera, SFATA Executive Director. "We believe that a national mandate for e-liquid packaging will help the industry safeguard all consumer interests, while continuing to offer adult smokers an indispensable alternative to combustible cigarettes."
