The Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (WSLCB) has released a bulletin announcing a ban on the production and sale of vape products that contain vitamin E acetate, which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has linked to the national outbreak of vape-related lung injuries.
The ban is effective Nov. 20.
Cannabis licensees must implement a recall plan for any vape products containing vitamin E acetate, according to the bulletin, and all products available for sale must have documentation available that lists all ingredients.
Washington adopted emergency rules last month that banned the sale of all flavored vape products in the state. Licensees must also submit a vape product ingredient disclosure form to the WSLBC by Dec. 1, per those regulations. In addition, retailers are required to post a vape-related warning sign at all locations.
