E-cigarettes with high levels of nicotine are handy in Ireland; HSE warns

Dublin: Two types of e-cigarettes with high nicotine levels have been discovered to be widely used in Ireland. The HSE then advised the public not to use them. Mc Kesse Blue & Ras Ice MK Bar 7000 Disposable and Mc Kesse Green Apple MK Bar 7000 Disposable were discovered to be unlawful. Both have an expiry date of December 3, 2023.

The HSE said the issue has been reported to e-cigarette companies, refill containers, and major suppliers in Ireland. According to the company, the nicotine level in the package is 20mg/ml. The HSE, on the other hand, revealed that the test detected up to 28.9 mg/ml of nicotine. The HSE has advised those who have purchased neems not to use them and to return them to the places where they were purchased.

The European Safety Gate, the EU’s food alert system, has warned that nicotine levels greater than 2% of the allowable limit are dangerous. In this context, products containing high levels of nicotine have come to the fore.

The HSE has advised retailers with stock not to sell it and to report it to [email protected]. Those who were sold should be recalled. The HSE recommended that notices be posted in stores, on the website, and on social media.

Dr. Maurice Mulcahy, Regional Chief Environmental Health Officer at the HSE, recalled whether the products purchased fell into this category. 

The HSE Regional Chief Environmental Health Officer, Dr. Maurice Mulcahy, stated that this is the second RAPEX alert issued recently by the Environmental Health Service. It is the responsibility of e-cigarette manufacturers and importers to ensure that their products fully comply with all regulations. He warned that legal action would be taken if this is violated.
