FDA Takes Action Against Illegally Sold “Nicotine Mints”

Recently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a warning to Nic Nac Naturals, LLC for marketing unauthorized dissolvable nicotine products called, “nicotine mints.” These products impose a risk of toxicity or death in young children if ingested accidentally. FDA’s warning is part of an ongoing effort to protect youth from the potential dangers of products resembling candies.

Dr. Brian King, director of FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products (CTP), highlighted the administration's goal of dedication to identifying and preventing emerging threats before they become mainstream. FDA is constantly monitoring the marketplace and is committed to ensuring the safety of the community.

The mint comes in a variety of mint and fruit flavors, each of which are available in either 3 milligrams or 6 milligrams of strength. This imposes a risk, as research suggests that ingesting 1 to 4 milligrams of nicotine could be toxic for children under the age of 6. Nicotine toxicity in children can result in health complications such as nausea, abdominal pain, increased blood pressure and heart rate, respiratory failure, coma, and even death.

FDA stands strongly in their statement regarding the use of compliance and enforcement resources to ensure the safety of potential consumers and their communitites.
