Walmart To Stop Selling E-Cigarettes
- Walmart has announced it will stop selling electronic cigarettes at its stores, citing increased regulations and growing concerns over the number of illnesses and deaths linked to vaping.
- According to an internal memo, the company will “discontinue the sale of electronic nicotine delivery products” after its current stock is sold.
- This week, the CDC reported 530 vaping illnesses in the U.S. so far in 2019, including seven deaths. New York and Michigan have already announced bans and the federal government is considering it.
