Alert number: A12/0929/16 
 
Category: Chemical products
 
Product: Liquid for electronic cigarettes
 
Brand: Quickie
 
Name: Milk and Chocolate
 
Type/number of model: 6 mg of nicotine
 
Batch number/Barcode: Unknown
 
Risk: Chemical
 
The product contains nicotine yet the presence of nicotine is not adequately reported on the labelling. The bottle containing the mixture does not bear an adequate label; the user therefore has no information on the dangers incurred when the product comes into contact with the skin or if it is ingested. In addition, the product can be misleading for consumers as it refers to a drink both in respect of packaging and in terms of organoleptic characteristics, i.e. intense aroma of cocoa. The product does not comply with the Regulation on the classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures (CLP) and the requirements of Directive 87/357/EEC on products which, appearing to be other than they are, endanger the health or safety of consumers.
 
Measures ordered by public authorities: Ban on the marketing of the product and any accompanying measures
 
Description: Liquid for e-cigarettes. External packaging: a container made of yellow plastic with an adhesive label. Inside, there is one bottle containing the refill liquid for electronic cigarettes, accompanied by two bottles that are empty.
