Amazon sold many FFP2 masks from a German manufacturer.

Now the mail order company is warning against mouth and nose protection - and the EU Commission even ordered the recall.

She is a best seller at Amazon, but the online shipping giant is now warning of her: The Atemious-pro-FFP2 mask from Univent Medical in Villingen-Schwenningen, Baden-Württemberg, could not adequately protect against infection with the corona virus.

Amazon warns, EU calls back: FFP2 mask with a certain model number does not provide sufficient protection against corona

The FFP2 masks apparently do not comply with the safety regulations of the European Union.

The EU Commission therefore ordered the masks to be recalled.

Models with the number 2001 are affected. The relevant number is directly under the name "atemious pro".

Amazon has already warned its customers about mouth and nose protection and also stopped selling the product.

According to the

, the fabric of the mask contains 22 percent fewer particles than would be necessary for safety.

Too little to meet the requirements for the PPE seal.

Failed by Stiftung Warentest: FFP2 mask from Univent Medical lets too many particles through

Stiftung Warentest had criticized the FFP2 mask from the manufacturer Univent Medical in a test because of its fit.

According to the testers, the mask did not hold up well enough in tests.

The result was that too many aerosols were let through.

FFP2 masks from the Rossmann and dm drugstores also failed.

Stiftung Warentest had already rated masks from the German manufacturer Univent Medical as "only suitable with restrictions" in March.

As a result, production came to a standstill.

The next setback followed for the company.

Also in March, experts criticized testing procedures for FFP2 masks.
