Posted Dec 01 2010 2:20pm
On November 10, HHS and FDA announced a proposal to require new and prominent health warnings on all cigarette packages, cartons, and advertisements. The inclusion of larger and more noticeable graphic health warnings will clearly convey the negative health consequences of smoking to educate all Americans about the health risks of cigarettes. The public is being encouraged to comment directly on these proposed warnings and to help FDA choose the graphic health warnings required by law for use on cigarette packages, cartons, and advertisements. The submitted comments will be officially considered in the final warnings that will be issued by June 22, 2011.
