South Korea’s top convenience store chain suspended the sale of flavored liquid e-cigarettes made by U.S. company Juul Labs on Thursday, a day after the government warned the public to stop using such products citing fatalities in the United States.

The GS25 chain halted sales of three of Juul Labs’ products including “tropical” – the equivalent of mango in the United States – and one made by South Korean company KT&G, store parent company GS Retail said.

The firm would consider dropping all liquid e-vaping products if an ongoing government investigation found them to be dangerous, it added.
