Kroger will stop selling vaping products

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced an executive action to ban the sale of most flavored e-cigarettes in the state on September 15.

Supermarket chain Kroger and drugstore chain Walgreens announced Monday they would discontinue sales of e-cigarettes at their stores nationwide, citing an uncertain regulatory environment.

The spokesperson says stores will stop selling e-cigarettes after selling through current inventory.

The transfer comes because the U.S. Facilities for Illness Management and Prevention investigates greater than 1,000 circumstances of vaping-related lung accidents throughout america.

Seems like this is another case of "they're just friends" - until the next Instagram post, that is. The party fizzled out, but certainly, Niall and Selena were ready to stay friendly.

There have been 1,080 lung injury cases related to e-cigarettes as of October 1, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The moves come more than two weeks after Walmart announced it will stop selling e-cigarettes in all of its stores, with the nation's largest retailer also citing the growing public concerns about vaping.

NY and MI have already banned the sales of flavored vaping products, while the Trump administration has announced plans to remove all flavored e-cigarettes from store shelves as officials warned that sweet flavors had drawn millions of children into nicotine addiction. "We will complete our exit after selling through current inventory".
