Site dedicated to flavored tobacco products to include information on quitting smoking.
Yesterday, the FDA launched a Web site dedicated to flavored tobacco products. Accompanying the new Web site is a phone line for reporting flavored tobacco. It includes an option for information on quitting smoking. When a caller chooses this option for quit assistance, the FDA gives callers the 1-800-QUIT-NOW number and they are encouraged to call 1-800-QUIT-NOW on their own. The North American Quitline Consortium (NAQC) does not anticipate this promotion of 1-800-QUIT-NOW to have a significant impact on U.S. quitlines, but wanted to make sure you were aware of it.
To hear the FDA recording, call 1-877-CTP-1373.
