United States health officials expect 'hundreds more' cases of vaping-related illness

Massachusetts bans sale of all vaping products for 4 months as mystery illness spreads

All Vaping Product Sales Are Now Temporarily Banned in Massachusetts

"The goal of this public health emergency is to temporarily pause all sales of vaping products so that we can work with our medical experts to identify what is making people sick and how to better regulate these products to protect the health of our residents", Baker said.

MA will place a four-month ban on all sales of vaping products, the state's governor announced Tuesday, citing the rising toll of mysterious lung illnesses and deaths linked to e-cigarettes.

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) issued a health advisory today urging everyone to refrain from vaping, no matter the substance or source, until current investigations are complete.

Schuchat emphasised that the CDC has still not identified any specific product or compound - including vitamin E acetate-based tetrahydrocannabinol (THC, the high-inducing component of marijuana) that is linked to all cases of the illness.

Hundreds more Americans have been sickened by a severe vaping-related illness, with the official tally set to be updated on Thursday, according to a United States health official speaking at a congressional hearing on Tuesday.

Earlier this month, the Trump administration said it plans to ban the sale of flavored e-cigarettes, which are popular among young people.

The House Subcommittee on Economic and Consumer Policy's probe began in the summer, and so far has focused on the role that e-cigarette maker Juul Labs Inc played in what Krishnamoorthi, the panel's chairman and an Illinois Democrat, has called a "youth vaping epidemic".

"I'm declaring this public health emergency because medical and disease control experts have been tracking a rapidly increasing number of vaping related illnesses that in some cases have led to death", Baker said at a press conference.

The temporary MA ban, though, would apply to all vaping products and devices. Across the USA, there are more than 500 reports of lung damage associated with vaping across 38 states and 1 US territory, and more reports are coming in almost every day.

"From our perspective, it's the absence of strong federal action by the FDA that is forcing states to have to make choices like this on how they are going to protect children and adults from the public health emergency of e-cigarettes", he said.

Tam said Health Canada's voluntary database of consumer device incidents includes three reports from two provinces, including one from London-Middlesex and one dating back to 2018.
