Alabama investigates 5 cases of lung disease tied to vaping

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 450 potential or confirmed cases of severe lung injury have been reported, including at least 6 deaths, in 33 states and one US territory. At least five people have died in California, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, and OR as a result of the infections. The CDC and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are now in an ongoing investigation to identify a more definitive cause.

But during the weekend he urged citizens of NY to stop using the product altogether for their safety until reason for the illnesses and deaths are determined clearly.
