Smokefree Innotec, Inc. Addresses FDA Concerns About Electronic Cigarettes

May 05, 2017

Smokefree Innotec, Inc. (Pink Sheets: SFIO) issued a statement referring to articles in USA Today and The New York Times of Wednesday, July 22, and Thursday, July 23rd, regarding the FDA taking aim at electronic cigarettes. The national dailies stated that tests show that certain e-cigarettes contain "known carcinogens and toxic chemicals," including diethylene-glycol (an ingredient used in antifreeze, printing ink, brake fluid and glue) and nitrosamine (which is used in rubber products, the tobacco industry, and - less concentrated - in beer and fish-products).

Thomas Schroepfer, President of Smokefree Innotec, stated, "The Company's electronic cigarette was not among those tested and is completely different from those tested as we do not use any kind of transponder substance. We have received confirmations from industry sources with knowledge of our product design and manufacturing process that no carcinogens or toxic chemicals capable of polluting our product are used in the manufacturing process and that the design of our product ensures a lower consumption level of nicotine, while still providing satisfaction to the consumer."
