Public Health Laws


HHS Safety Portal: Report to the FDA adverse events due to tobacco products and e-cigarettes.

"What is an Adverse Event?"  An adverse event is an undesirable side effect or unexpected health or product quality problem that an individual believes was caused by the use of a tobacco product.


Anyone can report an adverse event to the FDA. In fact, these reports help us identify safety concerns with tobacco products that could cause health or safety problems beyond those normally associated with tobacco product use.


Report through the portal link above, or by calling a toll-free number, 1-800-FDA-1088.
