The move comes less than two weeks after the FDA conducted a surprise inspection of e-cigarette maker Juul's Corporate Headquarters in San Francisco.

Agents seized thousands of documents, many relating to sales and marketing.

The investigations are part of the FDA’s crack-down on teen e-cigarette use.
