New corona rules: Aldi FFP2 masks are made in China

The products are sold through

Aldi's own brand Vitalis

.

According to the manufacturer "An-Dum", most of the

corona masks are

to be produced in China.

The

FFP2 masks are

then

certified

by the Universal test center based in Istanbul (Turkey).

This is considered an approved body in Europe.

Accordingly, the CE number 2163 is printed on the product offered.

The online mail order company

Amazon

also

sells

numerous

FFP2 masks

from various manufacturers: for example the

mouth and nose protection

from the “Europapa” brand.

Here customers can purchase several masks at the same time.

20 pieces are available for 29.99 euros.

These masks are

certified

by the same test center as the

Aldi

masks

.

Simple mouth and nose protection

protects the wearer: limited;

protects the environment: yes

FFP2 / FFP3 mask (without valve)

protects the wearer: yes;

protects the environment: yes

FFP3 mask with valve

protects the wearer: yes;

protects the environment: no

In any case, customers should pay attention to a corresponding CE mark.

However, not all test centers are considered EU-certified.

In addition, there have been repeated recalls in the past of corona masks that do not offer sufficient protection.

Corona mask requirement tightened: Already on sale in selected markets

According to chip.de, in addition to

Aldi

, other discounters are also

planning to

include

FFP2 masks

in their range.

Accordingly, consumers can also

count on the respirators

at

Kaufland

,

Netto

,

Penny

and

Lidl

*.

So far, customers have been able to purchase the coveted

corona masks

here

:

  • Ebay and Amazon

  • Pharmacies

  • in selected drugstores (Rossmann, dm, Müller)

  • in selected supermarkets (Rewe, Edeka, Real)

Stricter corona mask requirement: Long delivery times possible for FFP2 masks

The tightened mask requirement can be a major challenge for some.

FFP2 masks

are more expensive than conventional masks and should be changed from time to time.

Cleaning the FFP2 masks is also more complex.

And due to the now high demand, long waiting times are to be expected.
