(WWJ) A Michigan marijuana recall involves more than a dozen vape products sold in Detroit. 

The Marijuana Regulatory Agency (MRA) has issued a health and safety advisory bulletin due to the presence of Vitamin E Acetate in several vape cartridges which failed safety compliance testing in August 2020. These cartridges were manufactured prior to the Emergency Rules for marijuana products intended for inhalation filed on November 22, 2019.

Patients or caregivers who have these affected vape cartridges in their possession should return them to Plan B Wellness for proper disposal. Plan B Wellness must notify patients or caregivers that purchased these vape cartridges of the recall.

Following a nationwide outbreak of vaping-related lung illness nationwide, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) identified Vitamin E Acetate as the likely culprit in many cases. Vitamin E acetate is sometimes used as a thickener in vaping fluid. And while vitamin E is safe as a vitamin pill or to use on the skin, inhaling oily droplets can be harmful, doctors say. 

Anyone who who has experienced symptoms after using these recalled products is urged to call their health care provider. 

Patients and caregivers can report adverse product reactions to the MRA by sending an email to MRA-Enforcement@michigan.gov, or by calling 517-284-8599.
