RAI asks dismissal of Vuse lawsuit

January 13, 2016

R.J. Reynolds Vapor Co. (RAI) has filed a motion in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California seeking to dismiss a class-action lawsuit filed by California resident Jerod Harris, reports the Winston-Salem Journal.

Harris claims that the company violated the State’s Unfair Competition Law and the California Consumers Legal Remedies Act by failing to warn consumers that Vuse carries a potential carcinogen risk from exposure to formaldehyde and acetaldehyde.

The company noted that the plaintiff “does not allege with any specificity that consumer exposure to either chemical exceeds no-significant-risk-level thresholds established for those chemicals.”
