Description

This investigation revealed that tobacco companies have developed new cigarettes that pose a much lower fire risk than conventional cigarettes. An on-air test revealed that the new product was far less likely to ignite a furniture cushion than was a conventional cigarette. New York requires that the new cigarettes be sold in that state, and the tobacco companies do not sell them anywhere else.
