The Irish Health Service Executive (HSE) has warned the Irish public not to use a number of e-cigarettes, including the MK Bar 7000’s lue & Razz Ice and Green Apple flavors. The reason is that the nicotine content of the products in question exceeds the legal limit of 20mg/ml.
The HSE has sent an alert to the European Safety Gate, the EU’s rapid alert system for dangerous non-food products. Retailers have been asked to post recall notices on their business premises, online retail sites and social media. Stores are also required to provide HSE with supplier traceability details of the relevant products.
Dr Maurice Mulcahy, HSE’s regional Chief Environmental Health Officer, said: “E-cigarette and liquid manufacturers and importers have a responsibility to ensure that their products fully comply with all legislative requirements. People who have purchased the above products are advised to avoid using them and return them to the store where they were purchased. Manufacturers and importers are also reminded of their obligation to give the HSE adequate and appropriate notice in advance of placing products on the Irish market through the Common European Entry Portal.
