Trump Adviser Peter Thiel Faces Scrutiny Over New Zealand Citizenship
The Ministry of Internal Affairs said in response: "This is New Zealand - we do not sell our citizenship; it is earned". The files showed Trade Me founder Sam Morgan also wrote in support of Mr Thiel's citizenship bid.

The FDA announced earlier this month that the carcinogen levels in the smokeless tobacco product called N-nitrosonornicotine (NNN) should be limited or reduced. Altria spokesman Steve Callahan said "We appreciate our consumers' patience and loyalty while we work through this matter".

A full list of the recalled products is on the FDA's website.

Any consumer who has any of the recalled product should not open or use it, but instead, contact USSTC at 1-866-201-9136 to return the product for a refund. If successful, an estimated 15,200 life years would be gained in the nation as a result.
