FDA Unveils New Cigarette Health Warnings

Consumers are getting a glimpse of graphic images that will be alternating on all cigarette packages and advertisements within 15 months—an effort by health officials to discourage smoking by bringing Americans face-to-face with tobacco-related disease.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) unveiled the nine color images—including some of  bodies ravaged by disease—at a Tuesday news conference.

The images, which are paired with text health warnings, are required under the 2009 Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act.

It was announced by the FDA on Wednesday, June 22.
