TAMPA, Fla., April 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Nicopure Labs, LLC expresses its support and appreciation for the House Appropriations Committee's 31-19 vote to approve a bipartisan amendment to the Agriculture Appropriations bill offered by Representative Tom Cole (R-OK) and co-sponsored by Representative Sanford Bishop (D-GA) that would modify the grandfather date for vapor products in the FDA's upcoming deeming rule.
"Members of the Appropriations Committee who took the floor today in support of this amendment articulated a truthful and compelling argument in favor of the distinct tobacco harm reduction potential that innovative vapor products bring to millions of smokers," said Jason Del Giudice, Nicopure Labs co-founder and Chief Technology Officer.
"We are very encouraged to see that evidence on the comparatively reduced risk of vape products provided by credible anti-tobacco advocates worldwide and public health officials, such as Public Health England, the English equivalent of the Health and Human Services Department, has an echo this side of the Atlantic," added Jeff Stamler, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer.
"While this amendment is just the very first step in the process to reevaluate e-cigarette and vaping products regulation based on sound science and overall population benefit, we are confident that the FDA will now find renewed impetus to work with the industry and researchers towards development of vaping products standards, to ensure responsible manufacturing and advertising, communicate comparative risk among various tobacco products, and create a level-playing field for compliant companies to innovate and offer consumers alternatives to smoking that will eventually reduce the toll from death and disease caused by cigarettes," said Patricia Kovacevic, General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer.
