Walmart to stop selling electronic cigarettes at its US stores

Vaping criminal probe announced by FDA as illnesses rise to 530

No deaths have been reported in the state as a result of the illnesses.

The problem is not limited to the U.S. In Canada, the numbers of patients also continue to grow with two-thirds of smokers being between 18 and 34 years old.

There are signs the number of cases in the U.S. is climbing.

The memo which Walmart established mentions that stores will cease selling e-cigarettes after they fall short of the prevalent inventory.

Layden said the survey might be able to fill in some details to explain why some people become sick and others do not.

President Donald Trump and other top US officials also expressed concern about the growing use of such products as health officials investigate the matter. But the current move has been welcomed by them and president of Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids Matthew Myers stated that this is a responsible step taken by the retail giant in view of worsening epidemic among youth related to e-cigarette.

Vaping products can have highly concentrated amounts of nicotine. Cases have been confirmed in 21 counties in Wisconsin, including nearby Dodge, Sheboygan, Washington and Winnebago Counties. "These investigative efforts are happening around the country, and we appreciate those in Montana who are assisting".

MI is now the first state in the U.S.to ban the sales of e-cigarettes.

E-cigarettes were charged as a less hurtful route for individuals to get their nicotine fix than customary cigarettes. Recently, Walmart has announced to withdraw the sale of e-cigarettes. The decision, said America's biggest retailer, came due to the news of the rules governing e-cigarettes.

This decision is coming in weeks after some States the sales of vaping products.

Toronto Public Health said it had been told of several possible cases, but did not provide any further information.

Symptoms of the illness include cough, shortness of breath, chest pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue, fever and abdominal pain. Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea are also common.

Other causes, such as infectious or immune, were ruled out. Anyone who vapes and is experiencing respiratory issues should promptly consult their provider.

Until more information is known, CDC and DPHHS are advising people not to use any type of e-cigarette product. If it is a medical emergency call 9-1-1 or the Poison Control Center (1-800-222-1222).

Health officials urged people not to buy vaping products off the street or modify them.

CVS framed headlines five years ago when it ceased all sales of the entire range of tobacco products involving regular and electronic cigarettes.
