    Received this e-mail from Vaperstek.
    Wonder what this is about?
    Maybe the shipment was labeled wrong?

    "Vapers Tek nicotine is currently being held by FDA customs.
    Have more on order and will let everyone know when it is back in stock.
    We will be doing a sale when it arrives."

    Anybody else get the e-mail?

    Yeah I got one also. Hoping that this stop in customs is just one of the supposed <5% they pick to inspect. Vaperstek still has the throat hit nic on their website available but has oos on the good stuff.

    Let's hope this is nothing serious. But I will be watching........along with you. lol

    I'd pay more for USA made.

    It isn’t a banned item for shipping as an ingredient as best I recall the deeming regs. They might pull some samples to check if proper labeling and all. If it turns out to be an issue I expect we’ll hear more soon, but I wouldn’t jump to conclusions.

    That looks like the import is temporarily held in customs for clearance. Maybe checking labels, etc.

    Looks like they are telling you they can't ship yours until it gets out and in their hands.

    Probably is "correct papers" issue.
    The e-mail was sent to to all their e-mail subscribers, I assume, as I don't have any orders in with them.
    There will be an upcoming sale tho.
