R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company Modified Risk Tobacco Product (MRTP) Applications

On Dec. 18, 2017, FDA filed for substantive scientific review six Modified Risk Tobacco Product (MRTP) Applications from R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company for the following smokeless tobacco products:

  • Camel Snus Frost
  • Camel Snus Frost Large

On Oct. 25, 2022, R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company requested to withdraw these applications from FDA review. Withdrawal of an MRTP application does not prevent a company from submitting a new MRTP application for the tobacco products in the future. For any additional questions, please contact the company.
