Marlboro / Phillip Morris / cigarette burning

The last carton of cigarettes I got did have the FSC above the barcode. While I do see a purpose behind the new laws that mandate cigarette makers to use less igniting material in their products, I feel that in the case of Marlboro, Phillip Morris has taken things to far. The cigarette will not stay lit unless you a constantly puffing on it. Some of them go out before you have time to exhale. The fire falls off of the cigarettes now, and that can cause a danger (esp. while driving). There are other brands that may burn slower, but do not burn out. Marlboro appeared to be that way for a while, but now have gone overboard.
I have smoked Marlboro for the last 26 years and will most likely stay a loyal customer. However, I do feel that corrections need to be made to the product being released at this time. If corrections are not made, I will consider trying another brand.

I have to agree with the previous comment. I am very disappointed that my state legislature and my company(PM) have felt that it was okay to "pull this one over on me". I am one of the smokers who have been experiencing difficulties with this new cigarette. I have nausea, headaches, tightness in my chest, and my stomach has hurt constantly. This EVA, this is safe for me, because it soen't seem like it. I don't know what I'm supposed to do here. I cannot continue to put my body through this. I am and have always been a loyal Marlboro smoker. I am the smoker that will drive to one or more different stores to get my Reds! This is not right. What is my recourse here? What am I supposed to do now?

I agree. Just posted about this on another complaint board. My cigarettes just went up to 60.00 a carton (!!) and they are a pain to smoke any more instead of a pleasure.

I disgree for the high prices of marlboro brands and also evry time we buy cigarrettes they all chage taxes when it says on the bottom of the pack that taxes have been paid.

...the price thing is just another capitalist move by our government that, unfortunately we are forced to deal with. However, whatever Marlboro has done to the cigarettes and for whatever reason... it is ABSURD. Like the post earlier stated, not only is it an inconvenience - it is a SAFETY HAZARD!!! Not to mention, whatever it is that has been added to the different spots in the cigarettes that makes them burn all crazy cannot be good for us. For cryin out loud we are already smokers...

MARLBORO, PHILIP MORRIS... WTH!!! STOP IT!!! It's dumb.

I'd like to smoke my cigarette before it goes out. K thanks. I used to look forward to smoking but now I look forward to finding the few remaining packs of Marlboro Menthol Lights in NC with out FSC above the UPC. I am very disappointed in PMorris. Why should prices keep going up if we're getting a unsatisfactory product. At first I thought it was me just not puffing on it hard enough but then a friend pointed out that FSC was supposed to prevent a dumb*** from catching things on fire. hahaha why must they take simple pleasures away from us Americans? I have been a loyal CUSTOMER for years and the CUSTOMER is ALWAYS right!!!

Dosal Tobacco must not be smoking their own cigarettes. It is the paper that has changed the taste and flavor and is making people sick. I have five Dosal FSC cartons that I cannot smoke. They make you sick. Excessive coughing, shortness of breath, sore throat, headaches and many other flu like symptoms. From the internet I understand that the new paper contains ethylene vinyl acetate and polyvinyl acetate which is basically used in carpet glue. The cigarette would go out and when relit would cause sparks and often a 1-inch diameter fireball. I purchased some non FSC cigarettes and the symptoms stopped. The FSC cigarettes is hurting older persons more especially if they have heart or lung problems. I guess the government is trying to eliminate them first. Most of the older people do not realize what is causing their new problems because no one has informed them of these cigarette changes. Their doctors don't realize or are too busy trying to sell their AMA stop-smoking services and products. This law trying to save some of the 800 persons per year caused by carless cigarette smoking is actually testing the carpet glue on some 20% of Americans.
Our state governments have failed us. The FDA now has the power to regulate cigarettes. The Food and Drug Administration is a regulatory agency with the scientific expertise to identify harmful substances in products to which consumers are exposed. If hamburger is making people sick in the US then products are recalled and pulled off the shelves with a lot of testing to find the cause. Almost every state has passed the fire safe cigarette laws to decrease approximately 800 deaths from smoking related fires. (800 as opposed to 400, 000 deaths in the United States each year from tobacco products.) These FSC cigarettes have added more toxic amounts of ethylene vinyl acetate and polyvinyl acetate to the non-tobacco ingredients of cigarettes produced in the paper. The FDA needs to test the difference in toxic levels between the non-FSC and the new FSC cigarettes and report on the difference. But this is not important to the FDA because they are worried about young people smoking flavor cigarettes. Because of lack of news coverage most people don't realize that the FSC cigarettes are making them sick. The FDA has a responsibility to all Americans not just to the non smokers.

I have been smoking pm products over 40 years. Like others I will travel to find the one's I smoke. The new fsc cigarettes are an inferior product. I am horrably addicted. Have been trying to quit since 1986 but to know avail. I purchase a carton every 4 to 5 days. after reading some of the other complaints they have enlightened me to how I'm feeling health wise. My other complaint is the fire falling off. I am a commercial driver and am fortunate to be able to smoke at any time. These new cigarettes have dropped the fire off and burnt the seat of my pick up truck, my bass boat...and last but not least my new motorcycle. It's not due to my carelessness as stated before, I have alot of experience smoking. For the price that we pay it seems that pm would do everything they could to keep us as customers. If something doesn't change I will attempt to find a different product.

SAME HERE BAD SYMPTOMS: AURAS AND MIGRAINENS, EXCESSVIE SEAWTING, SEVERE SHORTNESS OF BREATH
I STOPPED AND ALL WENT AWAY EXCEPT FOR SHORTNESS OF BREATH, MIGRAINS, CHEST PAINS EXCEPT TODAY. I FEEL A BIT BETTER THIS TIME I HAD A FIRST CIG AND IT WAS NOT SUCH A STRONG REACTION. THE PACK DOES HAVE FSC??? I WENT TO MY DOCTOR A FEW WEEK AGO AND HE GAVE ME AN INHALER, SO STILL HAVE FSC BUT NOW THEY HAVE A PHAFMCUTICAL INHALER TO HELP WITH THE SYMPTOMS...SOUNDS LIKE THE NEW AMERICAN SCAM, HAVE TO STOP SMOKING NOW THIS WILL KILL U IN A SHORT TIME I AM SURE OF IT. ALWAYS WOULD BUT NOW MUCH FASTER. LETS PUT THEM IN JAIL WHERE THEY BELONG ISN'T THAT WHAT THEY DO TO CRACK AND HEROIN PUSHERS? OH I FORGOT NOW WE GIVE THESE PEOPLE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS. I GUESS THE OLD COPD WAS NOT FAST ENOUGH AND COST TOO MUCH IN MEDICAL CARE. READ THE SIDE EFFECTS OF FOR STRIVERDI RESPIMAT. BELIEVABLE BUT SO SAD WHAT OTER SPECIES KILLS EACH OTHER IN SUCH A HORRIBLE WAY FOR A FEW BUCK.S.

Dear Sirs.
I agree with the letter headed ( Cigarette Burning ) The Red dot strip is a danger as the hot ash falls out at the end of every cigarette. If my insurance company new I smoked Marlboro Red my car, household and Motor insurance would rocket !!!. Having enjoyed Marlboro for over 50 years I now live in fear of burning the house down or having a motor accident. Please. Please use some common sense ( Philip Morris.) DANGER. DANGER.
