Anti-smoking group urges Hy-Vee to stop selling tobacco products

As they continue their mission to reduce tobacco use in Iowa, a group is calling on Hy-Vee to stop selling tobacco products in its stores.

The Iowa Tobacco Prevention Alliance (ITPA) posted a petition online to get the West Des Moines-based grocery chain to stop selling tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, at any store that has a pharmacy or health clinic.

ITPA, a non-profit organization in Iowa solely focused on reducing tobacco use and exposure to secondhand smoke said they are requesting that Hy-Vee quit selling these products because they are a sponsor of Iowa’s Healthiest State Initiative.

“This would reduce the availability and marketing of tobacco products, accelerate progress in reducing tobacco use and ultimately help end the tobacco epidemic and the damage to health and well-being that accompanies it,” ITPA stated on its petition.
