There have been E-Cigarette Lawsuits filed over false advertising. There is chemical in E-Cigarettes that has been linked to a serious cancer called Popcorn Cancer. The flavoring chemicals that are allegedly causing the cancer are acetyl propionyl (AP) and diacetyl (DA). Acetyl propionyl is commonly used in microwave popcorn. Popcorn workers have previously filed lawsuits after they inhaled acetyl propionyl while working and developed lung cancer. There was a lawsuit filed against Five Pawns which is a e-liquid manufacturer alleging that Five Pawns claimed to removed diacetyl from it's products, but tests later revealed there were still trace amounts that could possibly cause cancer. The daily exposure limit for diacetyl is 65 μg/day. However, in a study conducted at Harvard it was found that in nearly 75% of E-Cigarette there is up to 239 μg/e-cigarette of diacetyl.
