Here's a link [cdc.gov] to the official US CDC writeup on reuse of masks. This page includes relaxed rules due to critical mask supply shortages. All major disinfecting procedures are tested and rated. Please read before making health-related decisions based on the hodgepodge of conflicting info in this thread. Note that metal nose pieces and microwaves don't mix.

BE WARNED: many who placed orders back on 4/5 from first deal thread have not received their product. No answers to email, no one picks up the phone. You can enter a callback queue but no one calls back. They made a shipping label, but the product is not being shipped. Merchant blames USPS. If you are outside your delivery window period, you can file a dispute/claim whomever manages your original payment method.

This is a crap deal @ ~$4.60 each with shipping.

**EDIT** SOLD OUT only kid sizes available Bombay Electronics has a 10 pack for $38, so 3.80 each with free shipping (it says free on $50, but it ships free with just one 10 pack, see for yourself.

3M compares the N95 to the asian (chinese KN95) and confirms it compares favorably. < This does not apply to counterfeit KN95 masks that are not even sanitary

https://multimedia.3m.com/mws/med...ses-tb.pdf

CDC recommends [link needed or it's not true] sterilizing N95 masks for coronavirus using the steam bags that are sold to sterilize baby bottles, etc. Target sells the Medela quick clean micro steam bags. The bags can be used 20x and likewise in testing the CDC found that most N95 masks survived 20x sterilizations before their protection was compromised and the mask needed to be thrown out. DO NOT USE DRY HEAT [not true either, see here https://news.stonybrook.edu/sb_medicine/dry-heat-ovens-can-effectively-disinfect-n95-masks/] or CHEMICALS (Lysol, etc) to sterilize N95s, it will compromise their effectiveness or flat out not kill the coronavirus that may be on the outside of them after use.

Can respirators approved under standards used in other countries, such as KN95, be used in the US during the COVID-19 pandemic?
Yes. The FDA is working diligently to mitigate any potential shortages in the supply chain and taking action to assure health care personnel on the front lines have sufficient supplies of respiratory protective devices. The FDA concluded, based on the totality of scientific evidence available, that certain imported respirators that are not NIOSH-approved are appropriate to protect the public health or safety.

On March 24, 2020, the FDA issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for importing non-NIOSH-approved N95 respirators. Under this EUA, among other criteria, the FDA accepts marketing authorization from Australia, Brazil, Europe, Japan, Korea, and Mexico who have similar standards to NIOSH. The FDA did not list KN95 respirators in this EUA because of concerns about fraudulent products listed as KN95s. On April 3, 2020, in response to continued respirator shortages, the FDA issued a new EUA for non-NIOSH-approved N95 respirators made in China, which makes KN95 respirators eligible for authorization if certain criteria are met, including evidence demonstrating that the respirator meets certain standards.

The FDA also issued guidance outlining a policy to help expand the availability of general use face masks for the general public and respirators for health care professionals during this pandemic. The guidance applies to KN95 respirators as well. It explains that for the duration of the pandemic, when FDA-cleared or NIOSH-approved N95 respirators are not available, the FDA generally would not object to the importation and use of respirators without an EUA, including KN95 respirators. Although not required, if a KN95 respirator does not have an EUA, the FDA encourages importers to take the appropriate steps to verify the product's authenticity prior to importing.

The FDA has adjusted its import screening to further expedite imports of legitimate products and is continually monitoring its import systems to prevent and mitigate any potential issues. The FDA established a special email inbox, COVID19FDAIMPORTINQUIRIES@fda.hhs.gov, for industry representatives to quickly communicate with the agency and address questions or concerns. The FDA is ready and available to engage with importers to minimize disruptions during the importing process.

Ordered these from previous deal...

Masks were manufactured in China in March 2020.

They don't provide a very tight seal and have tiny perforated holes that you can see light through.

I guess they are better than nothing if you don't have other options, but honestly don't feel the quality justifies the price and definitely don't think these are comparable to a N95 mask. I feel just as safe, if not more, wearing a standard surgical mask.

This price is ludicrous. I understand that this is the current market pricing, but these cost under $.10/unit to make Frown

I ordered a week ago and still hasn't shipped.

With the 2-week shipping, might as well order from China.

Ordered some last Wednesday and they arrived today. I have no problem spending the money to do my part. Just wish they were easier to come by and priced better so more people can do the same.
