Government Health Office Warns Public To Avoid Vape Brand And Contact GP If Unwell

The Government Health Office has warned the public to avoid a certain vape brand and to contact the GP if they're feeling unwell.

The HSE wants members of the public to stop using certain e-cigarettes from the Aroma King range of disposable vapes.

The reason being the products are non-compliant with EU tobacco legislation, the HSE said via a statement, as reported by The Independent.

The products reportedly contain more than the EU's permitted amount of nicotine, which is 20mg/ml. The HSE have also urged retailers to stop selling them.

It was discovered that 46 Aroma King disposable e-cigarettes were sampled by the HSE and they found that the nicotine concentration is higher than the allowed amount, with levels up to 50.4mg/ml detected.

Dr Maurice Mulcahy, Regional Chief Environmental Health Officer at the HSE, said: "As a precautionary measure, our message for the public is to check your e-cigarette product against the list of products involved in this alert.

"If you have one of these products, we want you to stop using it and return it to the shop where you bought it.

"If you have already used it and feel unwell then you should contact your GP as the first point of contact.

"We are asking retailers to stop selling the products listed below and to contact us with the full supplier traceability details.

"If retailers have sold or distributed any of the listed products below we want them to recall them by displaying a recall notice in a prominent position on their retail premises and on their website."
