Almost 1,000 nicotine vapes have been seized from a West Australian business, with the health department promising more targeted operations against suspected sellers of the illegal products. More than 900 e-cigarettes and two cartons of tobacco were seized from a business that normally serves food in Bunbury after a joint operation by WA Health and police.

WA Health spokesman Dr Michael Lindsay said e-cigarettes, or vapes, were a major concern for health officials.

"It's very uncontrolled, the sorts of things that have been found in e-cigarettes include heavy metals and volatile organic compounds," he said.
