    mouth-and-nose protection

    is

    affected

    by a nationwide

    recall

    .

  • More details have now become known.

Update from Wednesday, December 16, 2020, 2:54 p.m.:

There is new information about the

recall of

the

corona mask viral protect

.

"We do not recommend

using

Viral Protect masks from

Charge

T100406

 and offer an 

exchange

 or 

return

 ," the company writes on the official website.

"The background is a customer complaint about an unpleasant smell."

Before the

corona mask was

recalled

, there was a notice to which the manufacturer then reacted.

The company

commissioned the

Hohenstein Institute

to analyze a sample.

The result of the first analysis (sensor technology) was inconspicuous.

“During the more extensive chemical analysis,

aniline

was found in the 

border of

 a black mask,

” confirms the manufacturer.

"Aniline is a colorless, oily liquid used as a raw material for numerous pharmaceuticals, dyes and plastics."

Recall of Corona mask: checking the batches - also drugstore Müller affected

In the further course, corona masks from several

batches were examined

more closely.

Based on the data, the company was

able to narrow down

the deviation to batch

T100406 - black masks of size M and L.

The number is on the packaging in the lower left area.

It is now clear: The

corona mask affected

by the

recall

was not only sold at the

drugstore chain Müller

, but also via its own

online shop

.

The affected corona mask with the name "viral Protect" was offered and sold in stationary and online retail, for example nationwide in Müller drugstores.

Müller starts recall: Manufacturer informs about defects in the corona mask

The corona masks should no longer be used, the manufacturer appeals.

According to his own statements, he reported the

 defects discovered

to the

Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfArM)

.

Anyone who has purchased a mask via the online shop can

initiate

a

return

using the contact form.

Anyone who bought their corona mask from Müller should bring it back to one of the company's branches.

That is also

possible

without a

receipt

.

The discovered aniline

increases the risk of cancer

.

It is unclear whether the use of a corona mask

poses

a real

risk to health

.

Health hazard with corona mouthguards: At first only the smell stands out

Also

Müller

has now made an update on his website publicized.

The

recall

, which was

initially carried out as a precaution,

was due to the unpleasant smell.

“At this point in time, based on the test analyzes commissioned, there were no indications that could have justified a hazard”.

After further chemical analyzes,

aniline

has now

been detected

in individual samples of the

corona masks

.

Corona masks are part of everyday life in the pandemic: But a manufacturer has now launched an urgent recall - a toxin has been discovered in the mask.

Urgent recall for corona mask: the substance is so dangerous

Aniline

 is a clear, colorless to slightly yellowish, oily liquid and is considered an intermediate in organic chemistry.

It is used, among other things, as a raw material for the production of paints and synthetic fibers.

This is a

powerful blood poison

that prevents oxygen from being transported in the blood.

The poison can be absorbed through the respiratory tract, by swallowing or through contact with the skin.

In the case of mild poisoning, symptoms and signs in the form of

blue discoloration of the skin

and fingernails

,

dizzy spells

and

states of agitation

occur.

Corona mask recall: Customers can do that now

The consequences of a higher concentration can range from

headaches

and

persistent dizziness

to life-threatening impaired

consciousness

and

shortness of breath

.

Long-term symptoms of poisoning are expressed by a

feeling of weakness

and

loss of appetite

and can also

cause

bladder cancer

.

If the symptoms mentioned are found, owners of the

corona mask are

advised to consult a doctor as soon as possible.

Customers who bought the affected

corona mouthguard

in a

Müller

store can return it to any branch.

The purchase price will be reimbursed there even without presenting the receipt.

any

questions, you can
