There's also a 4-Ply option for $21.17 which may be the better deal as it's barely a dollar more. Works out as $0.067 per mask unless my math is worse than I thought.

Glad to see prices are returning to normal. Someone needs to tell the people at Gordon Food Service (GFS). They have huge displays of disposable face masks at $39.99 for a pack of 50. Talk about price gouging! Sanitizer and gloves are ridiculously overpriced as well. It's a shame that a company gouges people like this

Just looked at them and saw this:

"WARNING:
State of California Proposition 65: Warning. This product may contain one or more substances or chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer. www.p65warnings.ca.gov" [ca.gov"]

Sorry, but I think I need to pass, as I don't wish to be inhaling or being touched by carcinogens!

If that notice was not there, I'd snap-up some 4-ply in an instant!
(Unless someone can confirm that the warning only applies to the 3-ply ones, that is.)
90% of the time, this is due to lead content. The threshold California has set it ridiculously low. There's reports of fruit fresh off trees exceeding the lead limits that California has set. Lead and even arsenic occur occur naturally in the environment.

Goodness, I handled lead figurines my grandparents had weekly. Solid lead. 30 years later, still no cancer. Meanwhile California requires the Prop65 label if the PACKAGING was in the same room with lead. 🙄

The fruit issue actually went to court btw. Appeals court ruled fresh fruit does not need to be labeled with Prop65.

Disagree,made in america medical/surgical grade masks have been available for months (https://www.armbrustusa.com/). Yes, they are 10 times more than the one in the post, but at least they are ASTM II certified.
50 masks cost $30. What world do these folks live in? This is price gouging at its finest under the disguise of some certification! We have ample idiots who will fall for it without knowing that masks can do only a little and even putting a Bandana on your mouth could have the same effect

Yeah, almost every building has this label - Anything connected to a garage. It has become a worthless label.

There are studies proving bandanas are not as effective as surgical masks. Here's a link to Duke study https://advances.sciencemag.org/c...6/eabd3083

And as the price of 3-ply face mask get back to normal, I assume people should now buy based on quality and not quantity. Before Covid-19 started, when talk about 3-ply mask, people usually talk about deal for medical mask that mean US standard and not just any 3-ply mask.

Cheap mask usually didn't meet any standard. And probably their factory not certified by anyone. For no name brand, how do we know it made in clean and sanitize environment or make in some old factory space that used to make toys or other random made in China products that is not clean.

You get what you pay for by buying from random non-trusted brand for safety equipment that don't even know how clean the factory that produce this.
This. Nowadays many masks are made with blue cloth as the same color as those medical ones.

I don't think one needs too many of such non-medical one, comparing to cloth or washable ones.

Personally I don't trust non-medical one. I bought 4 cases for 20$/case (50 pieces) medical (level 3) masks in January. I reuse them for 3-4 times and hang in my car. I only used about 100 since February. (500 is too much I mean).

Any mask is better than no mask. It's much more important than hand washing. You don't need N95, this works just right.

What's more their mask pending N95 approval is vented, which exposes others to the wearer's unfiltered aerosols, which makes one wonder about the credibility of their other claims.

At this price, these must be made in such a high volume at a large factory, a face mask factory would like have all their workers wearing masks as well. This factory makes up 3 million a day. Walmart isn't the only one selling these by the hundreds or thousands per box, times how many hundreds or thousands of orders. These are getting sold all over the world, not likely made at a toy factory.

I bought some fishing line that had that label. Not lead sinkers, not hooks, just line. It wasn't even braid, it was fluorocarbon.

I think that has been the complain about no one buy Made in USA products because it is just so much cheaper to made in China. The reason is the supply chain are all in China right now. In China, they already built up all the supply chain for most manufactories.
Like ear loops, metal strip, packaging, melt-blown fabric, etc. And the machinery that make the machine that make those parts are mostly setup in China right now. And the material that make ear loops, metal strip, packaging, etc have all been setup (or easy to increase as needed) in China also. Getting all those to USA and made in USA going to be expensive not to mention the salary/rent different between China and USA.

Last time when there is a face mask shortage that factories in USA start making mask, after China met the demand, the USA manufactories pretty much stop making mask because of reason just like this. People not willing to pay more to buy Made in USA product and higher quality product and some people tell others they are idiots clearly indicate why most things are made in China right now.

As for people think Bandana protect you just as well as a good ASTM mask, may want to check out different research. First, there are studies of which material can reduce the spread of droplet (protect other from you) which not all material is the same. There is also study for stop you from getting virus/Covid-19. A good ASTM 3-ply mask may help reduce up to 50~70% chance getting virus/Covid-19 from others. Seems like some people think reducing the chance of getting it from others by 50%+ is the same as 0~10% using something like Bandana on your mouth (some people don't even cover their nose).......

For people that still confuse about wearing Bandana has the same effect as wearing 3-ply mask. Or wearing cheap face mask (that cause more air leakage and poorer filter) is the same as wearing high quality ASTM face mask, here is a study from University of Arizona-led research.
They assessed the ability of a variety of nontraditional mask materials to protect a person from infection after 30 seconds and after 20 minutes of exposure in a highly contaminated environment.

https://opa.uahs.arizona.edu/news...ials-masks

When the researchers compared wearing masks to wearing no protection during 20-minute and 30-second exposures to the virus, they found that infection risks were reduced by 24-94% or by 44-99% depending on the mask and exposure duration. Risk reduction decreased as exposure duration increased, the researchers found. Their study were focusing on masks protecting the wearer.
.....
"N99 masks, which are even more efficient at filtering airborne particles than N95 masks, are obviously one of the best options for blocking the virus, as they can reduce average risk by 94-99% for 20-minute and 30-second exposures, but they can be hard to come by, and there are ethical considerations such as leaving those available for medical professionals," said Wilson.

The next best options, according to the research, are N95 and surgical masks and, perhaps surprisingly, vacuum cleaner filters, which can be inserted into filter pockets in cloth masks. The vacuum filters reduced infection risk by 83% for a 30-second exposure and 58% for a 20-minute exposure. Of the other nontraditional materials evaluated by the researchers, tea towels, cotton-blend fabrics and antimicrobial pillowcases were the next best for protection.
.....
"Proper use of masks is so important," Wilson said. "Also, we were focusing on masks protecting the wearer, but they're most important to protect others around you if you're infected. If you put less virus out into the air, you're creating a less contaminated environment around you. As our model shows, the amount of infectious virus you're exposed to has a big impact on your infection risk and the potential for others' masks to protect them as well."

================

For people that using face covering but don't cover your nose (or don't wear it correctly), doesn't really offer any protection at all.
