The Food and Drug Administration unveiled proposals for 36 new warning labels for cigarette packages yesterday.
The labels cover half of a cigarette pack and feature photos depicting the health implications of cigarettes. One picture shows a toe tag on a corpse while another shows a man blowing smoke through a tracheotomy hole.
The labels are part of a law passed by the FDA last year. Cigarette manufacturers have come out against the labels saying they infringe on the companies' property and free-speech rights.
The FDA is seeking public comment on the proposed labels starting tomorrow through January 11, 2011.
