E-cigarette or Vaping Product Use-Associated Lung Injury (EVALI): Recall of medical marijuana products due to vitamin E acetate

December 19, 2019

The Marijuana Regulatory Agency has recalled marijuana products sold in central Michigan because of the presence of vitamin E acetate. Please see the attached information for details of the recall.

According to the CDC, vitamin E acetate appears to be associated with E-cigarette or Vaping Product Use-Associated Lung Injury (EVALI). However, there are many different substances and product sources that are being investigated, and there may be more than one cause of EVALI.

Until this investigation is completed, MDHHS and the CDC recommend that persons not use e-cigarette, or vaping, products that contain tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
