Vitamin E acetate linked to vaping injuries

The Minnesota Department of Health has linked severe vaping-related injuries to Vitamin E acetate in THC cartridges.

Products from 2019 were found to have the substance, but 2018 products obtained by law enforcement did not.

According to a release, the Center for Disease Control tested 29 samples of lung fluid from patients with vaping-associated lung injury, with five of those coming from Minnesota patients.

Vitamin E acetate was found in all fluid samples.
