Recently, Kretek International Inc., based in California, and Cheyenne International LLC., based in North Carolina, received letters from the House Committee on Energy and Commerce asking the companies to provide information on how they have marketed their "little cigar" products since September 22.
September 22 was the day the FDA ban on flavored cigarettes, including clove flavors, took effect.
