Last month Lawrence Deyton from the FDA replied to Jonnie Williams, CEO of STAR Scientific, the company which produces Ariva dissolvable tobacco, that “Not all tobacco products are currently subject to Chapter IX of the FDCA [Federal Food Drug & Cosmetic Act]. At this time, only cigarettes, cigarette tobacco, smokeless tobacco and roll-your-own tobacco are subject to Chapter IX FDCA Section 901(b)” (Ref, Star Scientific)
Since that announcement, Reynolds American owners of Camel Dissolvable tobacco, redesigned the product, packaging and Camel Dissolvable website. Also Altria announces, their subsidiary Philip Morris will launch in March 2011 Marlboro Sticks and other Altria’s subsidiary UST will release Skoal Sticks -both Altria’s products are still unseen in the retail community.
