Alibaba says it will no longer e-cigarette components in the US

Alibaba has said it will stop selling e-cigarette components in the US following a slew of vaping-related lung illnesses and deaths.

The Chinese e-commerce firm announced on Wednesday that listings for products such as box mods, vape pens, herbal vapors and vapor empty pod cartridges would not be displayed for American users. 

Alibaba added that it already had a long-standing policy in place to not sell complete e-cigarette products in the US.

   

The move follows announcements by companies such as Kroger Co and Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc this week that they would stop selling e-cigarettes at their stores.

Juul Labs Inc currently dominates the North American market for pod e-cigarettes, controlling about 70 percent of the e-cigarette market.   

It has a sleek USB-like design and comes in several flavors, which experts say are marketed towards teenagers and can fuel a tobacco addiction. 

However, many reports of the vaping-related deaths and injuries in the US have been tied to makeshift brands and components sold on sites like Alibaba. 

The most prominent, Dank Vapes, was linked to 24 patients with lung illness, ecig according to a study from the New England Journal of Medicine. 

The products contained THC, the main psychoactive ingredient in marijuana.

Prior to the suspension, buyers could easily purchase devices, component parts and packaging from sites like Alibaba or Amazon to make their own counterfeit vaping devices.

Amazon.com Inc took down vape juice paraphernalia in September, although it did not specify the exact products it removed.  

At least 23 deaths, which have been suspected to be linked to vaping, have been reported in 20 states

There have been 1,080 cases reported in mostly teens and young adults in 48 states, according to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report released on Thursday.

At least 23 deaths, which have been suspected to be linked to vaping, have been reported in 20 states: Alabama, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Oregon and Virginia. 

The latest death, a 17-year-old boy from the Bronx, New York, is the first teenage casualty, health officials say. 

Some states, including New York, Michigan, Montana and Rhode Island, have moved to restrict the sale of flavored e-cigarettes.

Massachusetts has gone even further, instituting a four-month ban on all vaping products, flavored or not.
