This comes as vaping-associated illnesses continue to climb nationwide. The CDC reports 530 cases in 38 states with eight confirmed deaths. In New York, the reported cases of vaping-associated illnesses increased to 81.

Experts have not been able to link a substance or product to all of the cases.

Earlier this week New York became the first state in the country to ban flavored e-cigarettes and nicotine e-liquids.
