"CDC recommends people consider refraining from using e-cigarette, or vaping, products, particularly those containing THC", Anne Schuchat, a CDC representative, said during a briefing Friday.

In Alabama, the deceased person was male, and from the east side of the state, health officials said.

The majority of the patients suffering from the lung disease are 18-34 year old men.

The announcement came as USA health officials continue to probe what has caused the outbreak of acute lung illness in people who vaped, which refers to the use of electronic cigarettes, or e-cigarettes. The patients all exhibited symptoms consistent with those identified in other states, including coughing, shortness of breath, chest pain, fever and fatigue.

"Any tobacco product use, including e-cigarettes, is unsafe, especially for youth", CDC director Dr. Robert R. Redfield said in a statement.


Most cases showed airway-centered acute lung injury (Panel A), often with severe bronchiolitis accompanied by marked mucosal edema, sloughing of bronchiolar epithelium, and peribronchiolar organization (Panel B). The others involve THC, the main psychoactive compound in marijuana, or a combination of THC and nicotine.

Thirteen other deaths have been identified as part of the multi-state outbreak of lung injury associated with vaping: two in California, two in Kansas, two in OR, and one each in Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Florida, Georgia and Mississippi.

In news reports today three more deaths have been attributed to the vaping-related respiratory condition that has affected more than 800 people in forty-six U.S. states and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The total number of confirmed and probable cases of serious lung disease in the state has risen to 14-including two probable cases.

Meanwhile, criminal investigators from the Food and Drug Administration are focusing on the supply chain to find out what's making people sick.


In addition to the order regarding warning labels, Health Secretary Kathy Kunkel also issued a health advisory urging New Mexicans to stop vaping until further investigations can be done.

The report comes directly after Governor Charlie Baker announced a statewide ban on vaping related products expected to last until January 25th of 2020.

Judy McMeekin, PharmD, the FDA's deputy associate commissioner for regulatory affairs, emphasized on the call that "no one product or substance" has been linked to all cases.

Piper then admitted she had been vaping, explaining that a classmate had given her an e-cigarette.

"In Wisconsin, two groups of friends. who became ill after using THC-containing cartridges specifically reported sharing Dank Vapes cartridges". Symptoms typically develop over a period of days but sometimes can manifest over several weeks. "We must do everything we can to reduce the use of e-cigarettes among middle and high school students to protect them from immediate lung injury and a lifetime of nicotine addiction".
