The CDC, US Food and Drug Administration, state and local health departments, and other clinical and public health partners are continuing to investigate the multistage outbreak.

But doctors studying lung tissue samples from people with vaping-related injuries have found that none of the cases actually had evidence of lipoid pneumonia, a rare condition typically linked to people accidentally inhaling oils into their lungs.

Data shows all reported patients have a history of e-cigarette use or vaping.

At present, CDC and MDHHS recommend individuals consider refraining from using e-cigarette or vaping products that contain nicotine.


Last week, the FDA warned consumers to stop using THC vaping products as investigations into vaping-related lung injuries and deaths continue.

In Michigan, 35 cases of vaping-related lung injury have been reported since August, according to the MDHHS.

CDC last month urged people to not use e-cigarettes with marijuana ingredient tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), saying that the high-inducing component may have a role in causing the illness.

Individuals should not buy any type of e-cigarette or vaping products, particularly those containing THC, off the street.

Another 58% said they used nicotine-containing products with or without THC. Those who vape nicotine to quit cigarette smoking should not return to cigarettes.

The state did say that of the 95 confirmed or probable cases of lung illnesses, 25 percent involve patients under 18 years old, but they range in age from 13 through 75 years old.
