Until investigators uncover what's making people sick, the OCHD is recommending that everyone stop using all e-cigarette or vaping products.
"The outbreak [data] is now pointing to a greater concern around THC-containing products", Dr. Anne Schuchat, principal deputy director of the CDC, said in a news conference today (Sept. 27).
Most patients have said they vaped products containing THC, the ingredient that produces a high in marijuana.
The CDC has said the specific cause of the reported lung injuries is not known and that the investigation has not identified any specific e-cigarette or vaping product - devices, liquids, refill pods, and/or cartridges - or substance that is linked to all cases.
It said many patients have reported using THC and nicotine, while some have reported the use of e-cigarette products containing only nicotine.
"These products flooded the market without anyone knowing how they would cause damage, and now we're trying to clean up a mess", Johnson said.
It is still unknown which ingredient or device may be causing lung problems in these reported cases, making it more hard to identify the exact cause of the injuries.
For people who are unsuspecting, black market products like Dank Vapes can be deceptive.

In the clip firefighters are heard saying: 'Ma'am, we're just letting you know that we're opening up the doors in just a moment. Passenger Jennifer Gettman said that the pilot announced the diversion over the intercom before landing in Denver.
"We are in the midst of a complex investigation that is encompassing almost all states, and involves serious, life-threatening disease in young healthy people who have reported the use of a wide variety of substances and products", Schuchat said.
"It seems there's too much conflating these tragic lung injuries with store-bought brands of regulated, legal e-cigs like Juul and NJOY", former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Scott Gottlieb observed yesterday, "and far too little blaming THC, CBD, and bootleg nicotine vapes-where so far, the only available hard evidence points".
A recent study of 18 THC-containing vape cartridges commissioned by NBC Newsfound that 13 out of the 15 cartridges obtained from the illicit market contained vitamin E and that 10 contained myclobutanil, a fungicide that can turn into hydrogen cyanide when heated. Although no single brand name was reported by all patients, a pre-filled THC cartridge sold under the brand Dank Vapes was reported by 57 (66%) patients, the report said. But health officials have warned it could be hazardous when inhaled, potentially causing the sorts of symptoms many patients have reported: cough, shortness of breath and chest pain.
"The outbreak now is pointing to a greater concern around THC-containing products".
As a national investigation started and broadened, reports have increased dramatically.
