FDA Center for Tobacco Products to launch six-month text messaging pilot program

Next week, FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products will launch a six-month text messaging pilot program as part of its ongoing efforts to educate our stakeholders about federal regulations to protect kids from tobacco. To sign up, text BreakChain to 87000 from your mobile phone. Starting this week, subscribers will begin receiving messages. Subscribers will also have the opportunity to take quizzes for a chance to be recognized on FDA.gov!

We greatly appreciated your help spreading the word about the FDA’s resources in the past and hope that you will also help raise awareness about the opportunity to participate in the text messaging program.

For more information on the mobile text message program visit: http://www.fda.gov/TobaccoProducts/ResourcesforYou/BreakTheChain/ucm219686.htm.

Additional resources on the tobacco regulations can be found at: www.fda.gov/breakthechain. Thank you for your continued support of the FDA’s education efforts. For questions about the new mobile program, please contact Jennifer Deets at (301) 348-1697 or jdeets@mmgct.com.
