[NPPTL] Counterfeit N95 Respirator Announcement

Respirator Buyer Beware

 

NIOSH has become aware of a counterfeit N95 Respirator on the market.

 

While the TC number and private label holder (KOSTO) are valid, this unapproved unit can be identified by the misspelling of NIOSH on the front of the respirator.

 

How can you be sure your respirator is truly NIOSH-approved?

Check the respirator approval markings or Certified Equipment List.

Additional information is available on the NIOSH Trusted Source Page.

 

 

As we become aware of counterfeit respirators or those misrepresenting the NIOSH approval on the market, we will post them here  http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/npptl/usernotices/default.html#Counterfeit Respirators
