VEA/Metals Test Results | December 19, 2019
In an effort to keep the public informed during the Cannabis Control Commission’s (Commission) ongoing investigation into quarantined vaping products, we are releasing 109 test results from samples collected and tested over the past several weeks.
Consistent with the last batch of results published by the Commission last week, these tests also show no detection of Vitamin E Acetate. However, because the presence of heavy metals remain a concern, specifically the potential development of lead, the Commission is sharing these most recent findings with the public. Each of these products had previously, and successfully, complied with testing protocols before being made available for sale. When tested again this month, however, 13 of the aforementioned products failed for impermissible levels of lead. A product fails if the result detects the presence of lead at 500 parts per billion (ppb) or more. Products detecting the presence of lead in an amount less than 500 ppb would produce a passed test result.
These findings make clear that the Commission should, and will, continue its investigation into vaping products. As additional information and findings become available, the Commission will continue to share them with the public.
