New FDA Webpage on Vaping-Associated Respiratory Illnesses


The following statement has been released by the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA):

“FDA and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are working closely with state and local health officials to investigate incidents of severe respiratory illnesses associated with the use of vaping products as quickly as possible. While the investigation is ongoing, FDA has created a Consumer Update to provide information for consumers to help protect themselves, as well as a new Lung Illnesses Associated with Use of Vaping Products webpage to provide an overview of these incidents and FDA’s actions to date, as well as recommendations for consumers, healthcare providers, and state health departments.”
