Quality Control in the Electronic Cigarette Industry in 2016
Already In 2016, the electronic cigarette industry has bad PR through several reported stories of exploding products. In California, a nineteen year old suffered first and second degree burns after an e-cigarette exploded in his pocket at work. According to the teen, the incident occurred after the e-cigarette came in contact with his keys. In Indiana, a semi-truck crashed, causing hours of clean up because an e-cigarette exploded in the driver’s hand. Although nobody else was hurt, the driver did sustain injuries to his hand from the exploding device. For the electronic cigarette industry, stories like these could not come at a worst time.
