Juul Labs Inc to pull sweet flavors from stores
The move comes as Juul and other e-cigarette makers have faced heightened scrutiny from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration amid a sharp increase in high school use of the devices, which look like a USB flash drive and vaporize a flavored liquid containing nicotine.
In a statement on Tuesday, Juul Chief Executive Kevin Burns said the company wants to be "the off-ramp for adult smokers to switch from cigarettes, not an on-ramp for America’s youth to initiate on nicotine."
