Health Canada updates its list of recalled KN95 respirator masks


June 8, 2020

--

As part of its efforts to equip Canada to fight Covid-19, Health Canada’s Interim Order dated March 18, 2020 expedited the review and approval of Medical Device Establishment Licences for Class I devices, including so-called N95 masks. Since that time, the masks of many manufacturers have been imported into Canada.

On May 11, 2020, Health Canada was forced to issue a recall of KN95 Filtering Facepiece Respirators imported from certain listed manufacturers in China. This recall notice made it the responsibility of all MDEL and Submission Number holders who import KN95 respirators from the listed companies to self-identify and cease selling these items as KN95 masks. However, the importers may continue to sell the item as face masks, rather than respirators, for use where 95% filtration is not needed.

On May 19, 2020, Health Canada expanded the list of manufacturers whose KN95 masks are to be recalled to include:
