Besides Brown Derby, amongst the chains mentioned by the FDA were Walmart, Kum & Go & Fast N’ Friendly, Dollar General and Signal. Walmart has already announced last month that it will no longer be selling vaping products in the States.
“Given the growing federal, state and local regulatory complexity and uncertainty regarding e-cigarettes, we plan to discontinue the sale of electronic nicotine delivery products at all Walmart and Sam’s Club US locations,” Walmart said. “We will complete our exit after selling through current inventory.”
The FDA said that in one case an underage undercover agent entered a Brown Derby store asking for a mint flavored e-liquid, and that the store sales person did not ask for an ID. In response to this claim a spokesperson for the chain said, “We are committed to ensure(ing) that Brown Derby remains in compliance with all laws and does not sell vaping products to minors. Brown Derby has removed all vaping products from stores at this time.”
