Mouth and nose protection does not meet health and safety requirements

The European rapid warming system RAPEX warns of several respirators. Part of it is recalled. According to the information, protection in the case of mouth and nose protection is not ensured.

Only a few weeks ago there was a recall for respiratory masks because of safety concerns. The European Commission's rapid warning system for dangerous non-food products now warns again that respiratory masks from China are in circulation that do not comply with the European standard and do not offer adequate protection against the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus or other pathogens.

No adequate protection

The European rapid alert system RAPEX is currently warning of various respiratory masks that were manufactured in the People's Republic of China.

According to a message, the particle filter mask of the brand: OANY (type / model number: FFP2 KN95, MS-KN95-01, batch number: production date: 2020 month 4) bears a CE marking, but is not certified by a competent body as protective equipment.

As a result, the product may not meet health and safety requirements and may not provide adequate protection when combined with additional measures. The product does not comply with the regulation on personal protective equipment.

Mask does not fit properly on the face

The FFP2 particle filter mask of the LexusLance brand (barcode: 6 973133 450018, batch number: lot number: LK-003-A004, production 91441300053799610K, date of manufacture: 16/03/2020, end of validity: 15/03/2021) also bears a CE Marking, but is not certified by a competent body as protective equipment.

In addition, the particle / filter retention of the material is insufficient (measured value ≤ 58 percent) and the mask does not fit properly to the face.

"As a result, an excessive amount of particles or microorganisms could pass through the mask, which increases the risk of infection if it is not accompanied by additional protective measures," says a message.

This product does not comply with the regulation on personal protective equipment and the relevant European standard EN 149 and must be withdrawn from the market.

Insufficient particle / filter retention of the material

The particle filter mask KN 95 particulate respirator of the brand X.Y.T XiangYanTang (barcode: 2054 6625) also bears a CE marking, but is not certified as protective equipment by the responsible body and is therefore being recalled according to a message.

There are also possible health risks associated with the particle filter mask with the name FFP2 Mask from the brand: Adiutor, KYJKKJ (barcode: 8 033109 030595, batch number: date of manufacture: March 2020, type / model number: KY2020). More information here.

And with the particle filter mask KN95 protective mask from the brand: KSL, the particle / filter retention of the material is insufficient (measured value ≤ 67 percent) and the mask does not adapt properly to the face. More information here.

The particle / filter retention of the material is also insufficient with the HUABIWEI particle filter mask Protective face mask (type / model number: HBV202002005, KN 95) (measured value ≤ 57 percent). More detailed information here.

This mask also does not comply with the regulation on personal protective equipment and the relevant European standard EN 149. (ad)
