PHOENIX – The Arizona Attorney General Office has targeted youth vaping and companies like Eonsmoke, LLC, who advertise vaping products to them. Last week, the Attorney General’s Office secured a preliminary injunction against Eonsmoke which immediately prohibited the company from selling its illegal products in the State.
According to the Attorney General’s Office, in 2019, the FDA determined certain Eonsmoke products did not have the required marketing authorization and therefore could not be sold.
Operation Counterstrike conducted by undercover investigators with the Attorney General’s Office found the products are being sold in most of Arizona’s counties and online. In response the Attorney General filed a lawsuit against Eonsmoke in January 2020 alleging, among other things, that Eonsmoke has been selling illegal vaping products to consumers and retailers across the State.
“I am committed to combating the dangerous trend of youth vaping,” said Attorney General Brnovich. “Speak to any parent of a high school or middle school student and they will tell you teen vaping is an epidemic. Millions are hooked on nicotine, enticed by youth-friendly flavors and youth-targeted advertising. Those selling illegal products must be held accountable.”
The injunction prohibits the advertising, marketing, distribution, and sale of all Eonsmoke products that the FDA has determined to be illegal in its letter to Eonsmoke dated October 24, 2019, for failure to obtain a proper marketing order. The injunction further requires Eonsmoke to notify Arizona businesses and online retailers that market, sell, and distribute its products that these illegal products must be immediately removed from the Arizona marketplace.
