TakeAPart: Philip Morris International in United States

Alleged Violations of Tobacco Control and Other Laws

Tobacco companies aggressively block, weaken, and undermine policies designed to protect public health and reduce tobacco use, and at times they may work outside of countries’ laws.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) must act and we must protect the FDA’s ability to shield our kids from Big Tobacco’s efforts to lure them into a lifetime of addiction and disease.

How Tobacco companies violate laws

Tobacco companies are simply unlike any other business – their industry is built on lies and manipulation and their product kills when used as intended. Tobacco companies fight and undermine proven measures that reduce tobacco use and save lives.

That’s what is alleged to have happened in the United States, where Philip Morris International has apparently marketed products without legally required FDA authorization.

Philip Morris International appears to be: 1) using social media to market iQOS in the U.S. prior to its obtaining the required authorization and 2) the evidence raises questions about the credibility of public claims made by Philip Morris International and its affiliates to FDA in support of its applications to market iQOS in the U.S.
