JUUL E-Cigarettes and Pods
November 2018: A class-action lawsuit was filed against JUUL Labs for allegedly deceptively advertising its e-cigarettes and pods as being safe when, according to plaintiffs, they contain a more potent dose of nicotine than cigarettes and are addictive. Plaintiffs also allege that the company fails to disclose that the products cause various health problems – including heart disease, stroke, and respiratory illness – and the marketing targets minors. The complaint was originally filed in state court and transferred to federal court later in the month. (Zampa et al v. JUUL Labs, Inc. et al, Case No. 19-cv-2466, S. D. FL.)
