By FDA order, Juul must stop selling and distributing e-cigarette devices, along with four Juul pods offered in Virginia tobacco and menthol flavors.

The responsibility for proving is ultimately the responsibility of the company, "Mital, acting director of the Michele FDA's Tobacco Products Center, said in a statement.

"Like all manufacturers, Juul had the opportunity to provide evidence that marketing of its products meets these criteria," she added. "But the company didn't provide that proof and instead left an important question."

Juul didn't immediately respond to the request for comment.
