According to a US Customs and Border Protection media release, CBP officers in Phliadelphia seized 300 counterfeit Juul e-cigarette pods. The counterfeit brands were Eonsmoke and VGOD branded cigarette pods of various flavors from Hong Kong.
After the pods were seized, CBP’s Consumer Products and Mass Merchandising Centers evaluated the goods and verified they were counterfeit. The fake e-cigarettes have a MSRP of $11,500 if authentic. This seizure follows an April seizure of 1,152 counterfeit Juul pods.
As with any media release on counterfeit goods, CBP was quick to point out the dangers of counterfeit goods – especially products such as e-cigarettes which have the potential to damage the health of the users.
