The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had a deadline for packaging rules set, however that date has changed. According to a story on TheHill.com, the FDA wants the public to first give its opinion on e-liquid warning labels, wording and childproof packaging requirements. The deadline for comments now is Sept. 30, and according the story, the FDA was asked to extend, but it doesn’t say by whom.
