FDA Warning Letter
Puff Bar was one of several disposable ecig manufacturers who received FDA warning letters on July 20, 2020. The key complaints revolved around the fact that Puff Bar is a relatively new product on the market, only hitting the market in the last two years.
Apart from these regulatory concerns, the FDA warning letter to Puff Bar took issue with the content found on their website.

Cool Clouds Distribution, Inc. d/b/a Puff Bar
MARCS-CMS 608526 — JULY 20, 2020
- “Made from medical-grade soaked cotton with 5% salt nicotine and flavoring, the Puff Bar heats liquid to product vapor without burning carcinogens.”
- “Smoking isn’t cheap, so we want a product that motivates you not just for health reasons.”
- “Value is important because smoking cigarettes is not cheap habit. Making the switch shouldn’t only be a health-conscious decision but a budget-friendly one as well.”
- “Quit smoking today with Puff Bar. Over 24 options to choose from. Traditional cigarettes contain a laundry list of chemicals that are proven harmful. There is still more research to be done on the negative effects of vaping, but we believe it is the healthier alternative and adults should have that choice. Plus you won’t smell like an ash tray.”
