Plans to regulate cigars and other tobacco products the same as cigarettes might threaten one of the nation’s top-selling cigar brands. Black and Mild is produced by the Richmond-based Altria Group. The Food and Drug Administration has proposed that cigar makers remove descriptions such as “light,” ”mild,” ”medium” or “low” from their products. In a filing that was made public Monday, the company argues the brand name is not intended to convey that Black and Mild cigars are any less harmful. It says the name should not be prohibited.
