(WTVO) — Those fruit-flavored e-cigarette cartridges are about to be a thing of the past.
On Thursday, the U.S. Department of Health and Human services banned the sale of the products.
Vape companies will only be allowed to sell two flavors: tobacco and menthol.
Companies will have 30 days to stop manufacturing and distributing sweet flavored cartridges.
The government says this is an effort to stop teens from using vapor pens. A survey from 2019 showed more than 5 million middle and high school students reported using e-cigarettes.
