E-cigarette flavors are under fire.

The Girl Scouts have joined the fight against the makers of the flavored nicotine used in electronic cigarettes.

The organization is joining General Mills and Tootsie Roll industries in threatening legal action for using their brand names that appeal to children.

According to NBC News, some organizations have sent cease-and-desist letters trying to keep their names out of the e-cigarette industry.

Last month the FDA proposed regulating the e-cigarette industry, but did not ban fruit or candy flavors, which are not allowed to be used in regular cigarettes.
