The FDA has issued warning letters to makers of 13 vaping products. They are packaged like candy, apple juice (in juice box), and other sweets but contain liquid nicotine. According to the New York Times, a half teaspoon of this vaping “juice” is enough to kill a toddler.
You can see pictures of the products and their real-food counterparts HERE.

How these products are allowed to stay on the shelves, we don’t know. They are blatantly being sold in packaging that looks like popular juice, candy and “snack food” products. A high percentage of vaping products are being used by teens. Many of these teens have younger siblings. They have a sweet smell and they taste and look familiar and fun. Be aware, younger children as well are at SERIOUS RISK.
