US-based Ploom has warned that counterfeit versions of its Pax vaporizers can raise safety issues, according to a ChinaCSR.com story.
Ploom’s vaporizers are smoking alternative devices that heat tobacco contained in pods to a constant temperature, vaporizing nicotine and flavors without burning the materials or producing smoke.
But Ploom says that certain counterfeit Pax products contain plastic materials that are not stable at operating temperatures.
It has advised consumers who have bought counterfeit Pax products to stop using them immediately.
Ploom says it has located manufacturers of counterfeit Pax products and initiated legal actions in China to stop the manufacture and sale of these products.
