Philip Morris International, Inc. has been developing a series of products that pose smaller health risks than traditional tobacco products. However, the complaint for this class action alleges that the company did not disclose information on clinical studies that might interfere with the products’ approval by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The complaint claims that the failure to report this information is a violation of the 1934 Act.
