Category:  Chemical products
 
Product:  Liquid for e-cigarettes
 
Brand: euliQuid
 
Name: Rum Martini
 
Type / number of model:  Rum Martini flavour – UN 1993
 
Batch number / Barcode:  Lot EL07151
 
Risk type:  Chemical
 
The product contains nicotine (0.2%) yet the presence of nicotine is not adequately reported on the labelling. The bottle does not have a child-resistant safety closure, and it does not contain an adequate safety label bearing risk-related indications, safety advice or a tactile danger warning. The user therefore has no information on the dangers incurred when the product comes into contact with the skin. In addition, the label and the packaging can be misleading for consumers as it refers to a drink and is attractive to children because of its drawings and pictures.

The product does not comply with the requirements of Directive 1999/45/EC relating to the classification, packaging and labelling of dangerous preparations.
 

Measures ordered by public authorities (to: Other): Ban on the marketing of the product and any accompanying measures
