WASHINGTON (WIVB) – Senator Charles Schumer is calling on the FDA to put clear warning labels on electronic cigarettes.

He says e-cigarettes can be dangerous, especially for children. Schumer says parents need information to make sure children are protected.

“Most parents right now don’t know this is poison, especially to kids. Clear labels will alert them,” he argued.

Schumer says the labels are also needed because e-cigs are sold in flavors such as bubble gum, chocolate and cotton candy and can be attractive to young children. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
