N95 Equivalent Masks: FDA EUA and CDC Update

This morning, the FDA made a sweeping May 7th update to the non-NIOSH imported N95 equivalent Emergency Use Authorization list: https://www.fda.gov/media/136663/download

The updated FDA EUA list removed majority of previously authorized manufacturers. The updated list now only contains #N95 equivalent masks that passed NPPTL testing with greater than 95% filtration on the following CDC list: https://www.cdc.gov/niosh/npptl/respirators/testing/NonNIOSHresults.html

Face Filter USA gave significant thought and care in selecting our N95 equivalent masks, and we are happy to say that our current inventory is included on the updated list.

The FDA began coordinating with CDC as there have been quality control issues with masks listed on FDA EUA non-NIOSH imported N95 equivalent list. Many poor quality KN95 masks have flooded the market. Please be aware and check the NPPTL test results of any KN95 mask you are looking to purchase.

Please inform your friends in the medical community about the CDC testing page and updated FDA EUA list so they stay safe and are receiving quality masks. Face Filter USA has both NIOSH N95 and NPPTL tested/FDA EUA KN95 (Powecom KN95) available on our website for immediate purchase and available 2-day shipping within United States.

Be well,
