US: IBWA distances itself from nicotine water
The International Bottled Water Association (IBWA) has issued a statement disowning water-based products that contain nicotine as "bottled waters".
"Packaged waters with nicotine content are not considered bottled water, since they do not meet the applicable FDA regulatory requirements and standards required of bottled water products," the IBWA said.
The statement explained that packaged waters containing nicotine do not meet FDA definitions of "bottled water," although they may fall under FDA regulatory authority in some other category.
"Water-based products containing nicotine are not representative of the traditional bottled water industry and, to our knowledge, no IBWA member produces such a product. IBWA wants to clarify its viewpoint on this matter so that like products are not inappropriately classified or characterized as 'bottled water'," the statement said.
