About Ends and Other Flavored Tobacco Products
Ensuring that consumers can trust in the safety of flavors used in foods and beverages is FEMA’s primary goal. FEMA’s Expert Panel evaluates flavor ingredients for use in foods and beverages only, not in non-food products like electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) and other flavored tobacco products. FEMA has cautioned ENDS and other flavored tobacco product manufacturers not to imply the flavors they use have been evaluated as safe for this purpose by the FEMA Expert Panel.
