USA government shelves warning label appeal

The federal government will not pursue its legal battle to overturn a court ruling blocking

the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) from mandating large graphic warnings on cigarette packs, the Associated Press reported.

 

Attorney General Eric Holder in a letter to House Speaker John Boehner wrote the government will not appeal to the Supreme Court. A Washington appeals court last August blocked introduction of nine graphic warning labels.

According to the Associated Press, the FDA said it will begin work on a new set of warning labels that are compliant. (20 March 2013)
