Leafly: “Tainted Vapes Recalled as Oregon Regulators Plan Wider Ban” https://ift.tt/2WpbNvu

Article by David Downs

PS: Downs doesn't mention it, but Oregon's 1st EVALI death was linked to a cannabis cart obtained at a local dispensary. That person died 1 1/2 years ago. Oregon health officials were fairly open about the link, initially, before their focus was shifted to nicotine vapes.

Downs does point-out that 'squalene' (and the squalene-containing but proprietary cannabis diluent "Viscosity") have been mentioned in connection with EVALI since August 2019, at least.

Now, Oregon has determined that maybe it isn't such a good idea to allow cannabis manufacturers to include unknown ingredients in their products anymore. Later this month they will propose rules to ban the practice (and other practices, including specifically the use of squalene, squalane, MCT oil and… uh… PG).
