Juul stands accused of shipping a million contaminated vape pods

Juul stands accused of shipping a million contaminated vape pods 1

The lawsuit says Breja learned in an executive meeting on March 12th, 2019 that approximately 250,000 Juul mint refill kits (equivalent to one million pods) with contaminated e-liquid were shipped to retailers and sold to consumers. It goes on to say that Breja protested Juul’s refusal to issue a product recall or to at least issue a public safety notice, but former chief finance officer Tim Danaher “questioned his financial acumen” since doing so would cost the company billions of dollars.

In addition, the former exec says he protested the sale of year-old pods in February and urged Juul to add an expiration date on its packaging. Former chief executive Kevin Burns, who’s since been replaced by former Altria executive K.C. Crosthwaite, allegedly replied: “Half our customers are drunk and vaping like mo-fos, who the fuck is going to notice the quality of our pods?”

Breja’s lawyer Harmeet Dhillon told BuzzFeed News in a statement:

“Mr. Breja became aware of very concerning actions at the company, and he performed his duty to shareholders and to the board by reporting these issues internally. In exchange for doing that, he was inappropriately terminated. This is very concerning, particularly since some of the issues he raised concerned matters of public safety.”

We’ve also reached out to Juul for a response and will update this post when we hear back.

Juul has been under intense scrutiny over the past year for marketing campaigns critics believe were created to make the brand more attractive to teens. The company has been in the crosshairs of authorities like the FTC and the FDA, which accused it of undermining efforts to prevent teen vaping. In addition, the vaping industry has been under the microscope as a whole after the CDC revealed hundreds of cases of severe lung illnesses potentially linked to vaping.
