Recall of FFP2 masks in Germany: Air is not filtered sufficiently

Now the

Rapex rapid warning system of the European Union

warns

again of K95 masks.

The model number CY2020-KZ002 FFP2 NR Non-medical - CE marking: CE2834 - is being recalled.

The barcode on the affected item is 6973181510016. According to the website, the mask does not fit the face properly.

The consequence: air cannot be filtered sufficiently, the measured mean values ​​are therefore only up to 66 percent.

There is also additional packaging as double packaging in a plastic bag with printed instructions for use.

another warning in favor of a respirator.

More precisely to the model number KN95-A, batch number 20200423. This disposable mask is supposed to protect against foreign particles when breathing - but its filter capacity has not been tested by any competent European assessment body.

In addition: The filter retention of the material is insufficient.

Here the measured values ​​are only up to 30 percent.

The article is a white protective mask with an external metal nose clip, five layers and "KN95" embossed on the side.

The mouthguard is offered in a white and blue plastic packaging with five masks per pack.

The masks can also be bought on the Internet.

In the EU, only FFP2 masks are permitted that have a maximum permeability of six percent.
