WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. health officials are making a new attempt at adding graphic images to cigarette packets to discourage Americans from lighting up.
Most developed countries worldwide have adopted similar graphic warning labels.
The FDA's previous effort was defeated in court in 2012. A panel of judges sided with tobacco companies and ruled that the agency couldn't force cigarettes to carry grisly images, including cadavers, diseased lungs and cancerous mouth sores.
The agency will take comments on the new proposal before moving to finalize the labels.
