Why did this mask fail?
Country of Origin
Purchase this mask
The KN95 standard explicitly states that the standard GB2626-2019 must be printed on the mask itself, not the box.
Although the information provided on the HUHETA boxes gives the impression that the masks comply with the latest regulations, the actual masks are embossed only with the markings “KN95,” with no manufacturer identification or GB2626 number. Most legit masks have all such information embossed on each mask in addition to the packaging. This manufacturer’s KN95 masks are also listed on the FDA’s recent Revoked EUA appendix. I bought three boxes of these on Amazon a few months ago and I’m very frustrated that they are not completely legit. I don’t know what to do with them. That said, given my job as a classroom teacher, I’ve decided to stop using them and replace them with legit N95 masks purchased from sources other than Amazon.
The reasons given on the details page as to why KN95 masks might not be “passed” despite meeting metrics is given as “they must have GB2626 numbers on front.” Yet the image of this mask literally shows that number on the front of the box. Thus unless there are other reasons this mask type should be PASSED.
