MANILA, Philippines — Two members of the House of Representatives recently moved to suspend public consultations on e-cigarettes and heated tobacco products after the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) admitted receiving funds from foreign anti-tobacco groups — namely, The Union and Bloomberg Initiative.

The issue of a potential conflict of interest came out last Oct. 8 during a virtual public consultation on the proposed General Guidelines for the Regulation of Heated Tobacco Products, according to a statement issued by the lawmakers.
