Marijuana vape cartridges recalled due to presence of vitamin E acetate

The Marijuana Regulatory Agency (MRA) has issued a recall of marijuana vape cartridges due to the presence of vitamin E acetate, which can cause lung-related health issues.

Several of the tested vape cartridges failed laboratory tests. And under recent emergency rules set under the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA), products manufactured prior to Nov. 22, 2019 require testing to identify if vitamin E acetate is present.

"The emergency rules prohibit a licensee from adding inactive ingredients not approved by the FDA for inhalation," according to a release. "The rules further require that all products brought in from caregivers (external transfer) is tested for the presence of Vitamin E Acetate as well as the testing specified in the administrative rules."

The vape cartridges recalled have levels of vitamin E acetate greater than 500 times the limit of quantitation (LOQ), which is 100 parts per million (ppm).

The affected cartridges will have labels that indicate the license number of the marijuana facility that packaged the product. View list below for affected items.
