WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) - Juul Labs says it will halt sales of its best-selling mint-flavored electronic cigarettes.
The company said in a statement Thursday the move is in response to new research.
The studies released this week showed that mint was the most popular vaping flavor among many high school students who use e-cigarettes.
Federal officials are expected to soon release their plans to remove most vaping flavors from the market to combat the surge in underage vaping.
After stopping mint sales, Juul will only sell menthol and tobacco flavors.
