    Have any seized shipments been released ? Any information would be great on this. I have one that was seized @ LAX and keep getting the run around.

    I placed an order on Jan 14th, airmail and it hit town today.
    No juice, a bunch of atomizers and a few other items. Small package, weighed in just under a lb. I could not begin to have to worry about thousands of dollars. A couple hundred always puts me on pins and needles.

    Does this mean that our orders that have been confiscated will now be released?

    Sorry to say that as of February 6th, Cherry Vapes had still not received the package that was held up in Customs. I have read other posts on ECF of people finally receiving some held up shipments, but this one has not been delivered.

    Always seemed funny to me how some people set up global distribution networks while others are fighting to get their 20-30 little ecig kits released.

    I don't understand what basis they are seizing these shipments on. How is it possibly legal for them to do something like that? I mean, if I ordered a custom made wedding dress from China, could the seize that too? It just doesn't make any sense to me. How can they possibly be doing that and getting away with it?

    My understanding is that as long as the FDA files any kind of appeal they can continue to seize shipments. After the appeals are exhausted there is still a time period in which they can continue to seize packages.

    Your wedding dress hasn't been declared an "unapproved drug delivery device" by the FDA. The FDA can seize/stop unapproved drugs coming into the country.

    The court ruling only applies to Njoy shipments. So only Njoy shipments are protected from seizure. As far as I know, all appeals HAVE been exhausted, since they haven't filed an appeal with the supreme court.

    Thanks for clarifying Kristin. I didn't know that. I had a couple of shipments of cigarettes taken by customs a couple of years ago and the company told me there was nothing they could do about it. I never understood why, but haven't ordered from overseas since for that exact reason.

    Are these companies required by law to label their packages as to what the contents are?

    Here is the text of the import alert: Import Alert 66-41

    Note that only products and manufacturers are listed, not the names of persons or companies receiving the products. So if one of the companies that manufactures NJOY products is on the list and the bill of lading matches any of the product terminology (e.g. "PN Pump, Nebulizer, Manual"), it is possible that products destined for delivery to NJOY could be seized.

    I did a text search for "electronic cigarette" and had 48 matches.

    No matches were found for "NJOY".

    Traver posted a link to FDA's public input forum inviting comments. I checked it out, there was only 1 comment there last night when I left my comment. I guess that means they have room for A LOT more comments.

    Up to 6 now. Would it not be a hoot if we could get that count up to 600?

    Anyone having a problem commenting? I got the message "Your comment has been blocked because the blog owner has set their spam filter to not allow comments from users behind proxies." I'm using chrome and I know it was updated yesterday, but not sure what's happening.

    If you attempt to hide or disquise your IP address, the above message is what you get. I tested it and indeed they will not allow a post. So, I did NOT hide my IP and plainly announced that the site would not allow a post unless "they" could see your IP address. Gee.......you wonder why this is so important to "them" to know your IP address?
