Vitamin E acetate, an oil, is a synthetic form of vitamin E.Investigators tested samples of fluid taken from the lungs of 29 patients with vaping illness in 10 different states, and found vitamin E acetate in all 29.
No other oils, such as mineral oil or plant oils, were found at high levels.
“These findings provide direct evidence of vitamin E acetate at the primary site of injury within the lung,” said Schuchat, adding the oil had previously been detected in product samples.
