// Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and WHSmith have already withdrawn all Elf Bars products
Morrisons and Asda have become the latest retailers to ditch the sale of Elf Bar vapes after the e-cigarettes were found to be breaking the law on nicotine limits.
Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and WHSmith have already withdrawn all Elf Bars products from stores and online.
It comes after independent lab tests found that the 600 line of e-cigarettes were at least 50% over the legal limit for nicotine e-liquid, the Mail reported.

Asda has removed Elf Bar 600 flavours from sale and is awaiting the findings of the relevant investigations, while WHSmith said all variants of Elf Bar have been removed from sale.
Sainsbury’s has removed all Elf Bar products from stores and is working with suppliers to investigate this matter further.
Morrisons said the products will only be returned to sale once it fully complies with UK legislation.
Tesco has temporarily removed all Elf Bar vape lines from its supermarkets and One Stop stores whilst the investigation commences.
Last month, Waitrose scrapped the sale of all single-use vaping products in stores and online due to the negative impact on the environment and the health of consumers.
The grocer said it cannot justify selling single-use products and has therefore removed two types of e-cigarette from sale.
Waitrose de-listed vaping products containing lithium, which it had previously sold under the Ten Motives label.
