"Dank Vapes was the only e-cigarette product reported by one of the patients", according to the report from the two states. "I think it's premature for us to rule out other concerning products".

E-cigarettes have been available in the United States since 2006 and it is not clear whether the outbreak is only happening now or if there were cases earlier that were wrongly diagnosed.
