USA.gov Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), state and local health departments of US gov., and other clinical and public health partners are investigating a multistate outbreak of lung injury associated with e-cigarette product (devices, liquids, refill pods, and/or cartridges) use.
Electronic cigarettes—or e-cigarettes—are also called vapes,
e-hookahs, vape pens, and electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS). Using an
e-cigarette product is commonly called vaping. E-cigarettes work by heating a
liquid to produce an aerosol that users inhale into their lungs. The liquid can
contain: nicotine, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabinoid
(CBD) oils, and other substances and additives.

several weeks. A lung infection does not appear to be causing the symptoms.
CDC Recommendations for Lung Injury Associated with Using
