FDA Cautions People to Avoid Vaping Products with THC Oil, Vitamin E Acetate , Published in NEJM Journal Watch, September 10, 2019. The FDA has found significant amounts of vitamin E acetate in most of the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) vaping products tested from people who’ve become ill with severe respiratory illness. The agency says that “it is prudent to avoid inhaling this substance. “However, not all of the people who’ve become sick have used these products, so the FDA cautions that it can’t yet say that the vitamin E acetate is causing illness. The agency notes that people can’t be certain whether a vaping product contains vitamin E acetate, and it reminds users not to buy vaping products from the street.
Consumers should also avoid using THC oil or adding material to store-purchased vaping products.
