Lorillard recalls certain Newport cigarette packs

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Lorillard has voluntarily recalled certain Newport non-menthol cigarettes.

The recall was initiated after the company discovered that some of the cigarettes manufactured between June 29 and 30 could contain small pieces of plastic. At this point, no plastic has been found in any of the cigarettes, but if burned, the plastic may create respiratory discomfort or irritation, Lorillard said.

Customers that purchase cigarette packs or cartons with the following code numbers should return them for a full refund of the purchase price: 1-O-29-750, 1-O-29-440, 1-O-30-750 and 1-O-30-440.
