KN95 Respirators – Update on Actions Required

June 12, 2020
by Health Canada

As part of its ongoing surveillance and assessment of KN95 respirators that may not meet filtration standards, Health Canada has determined that KN95 Particle Respirators manufactured by the companies listed below do not meet the required standards for filtration or the design features related to achieving an adequate fit. As a result, KN95s manufactured by these companies may pose a health and safety risk in settings where a 95% filtration is required. These products must be relabeled as face masks for use in settings where 95% filtration is not required. Under the Medical Devices Regulations, this re-labeling is considered a recall.
