We demand that Congress act now to direct FDA to immediately conduct testing for toxic pesticide residues on the Tobacco component of IQOS before any further FDA consideration of any pending IQOS application.
Teens and younger children whose neurological and reproductive development is still highly vulnerable will be inhaling a concentrated pesticide vapor. This does not make a "reduced harm" Tobacco product, nor a "safer" option to smoking.
In all its applications for IQOS Philip Morris never mentions pesticides. Accidental oversight or deliberate omission? Philip Morris knows its products are full of pesticides.
FDA currently has no authority to order inspection of the IQOS Tobacco component for pesticide residues. That's why Congress has to act now, before IQOS can slip past the strangely silent and cooperative FDA and begin vaporizing millions of American lives.
