Are Cosmetics Gaining Higher Congressional and FDA Scrutiny?
Shared from JD Supra
Currently, FDA regulates cosmetics to ensure they are not adulterated or misbranded, but does not have the authority to order cosmetic recalls or require adverse event reporting.  Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Susan Collins (R-ME) seek to change that.
On April 20, 2015, they introduced the Personal Care Products Safety Act (S.1014). The Act, if passed, would modify Chapter VI of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FDCA) to strengthen FDA’s oversight of, and regulatory authority over, cosmetic products.
Title I of the Act (“Cosmetic Safety”) gives FDA authority to order cosmetic recalls, as well as require manufacturers to:Report adverse events, Label ingredients not appropriate for children, Post complete label information (including ingredients and product warnings) online, and Register their facilities with FDA.

Cracking down on mobile cramming, Sprint and Verizon to pay fines
Shared from Consumers Union
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC), together with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and states’ attorneys general, today announced that Verizon and Sprint will pay a combined $158 million to settle an investigation into deceptive mobile cramming practices.
Verizon Wireless will pay $90 million and Sprint Corporation will pay $68 million for billing customers millions of dollars in unauthorized third-party premium text messaging services, a practice called “cramming.” Under the proposed terms, $120 million will go towards consumer refunds, with the companies also paying $38 million in federal and state fines.

E-cigs may send no-smoking policies up in vapor
Shared from JD Supra
Wondering what your employee is smoking in the break room, likely in violation of your “no-smoking” policy? Chances are it is an electronic smoking device, such as an e-cigarette or vaporizer. What should you do about it? Anything?  
Many people are familiar with the increasingly popular e-cigarettes and vaporizers, forcing employers to now grapple with the question of whether to permit these devices in the workplace. The answer to this question is constantly changing based on new and revised laws and regulations. It can be difficult to stay aware of this ever-changing issue. Electronic smoking devices, particularly vaporizers, are skyrocketing in popularity. One example of this continued popularity is shown by Oxford Dictionary’s selection of the word “vape” as the 2014 word of the year. With around five million Americans currently “vaping” and a $2.5 billion industry with a 23% rise in sales in 2014, the electronic smoking industry is here to stay. 
There is no indication that growth will slow down any time soon, as sales are projected to surpass $3.5 billion this year with $1.5 billion attributed to e-cigarettes and the other $2 billion attributed to vaporizers, according to a Wells Fargo report.
