FYI – Notice of Non-Conforming NIOSH Approved N95 Masks from ALG Health
Hello! I was on the ALG Health website earlier today to purchase more foldable surgical N95 masks, and I saw a notice posted on the ALG Health website that several lots of their 100,000 PT-N95F-01S respirators were produced using materials and processes that were not conforming to the NIOSH approval issued. The following finished good lots affected are as follows: Manufacture dates were: Last week of Feb 2021 – March 2021Lot# PT-N95F-01S-204-2021Lot# PT-N95F-01S-301-2021Lot# PT-N95F-01S-302-2021Lot# PT-N95F-01S-303-2021Lot# PT-N95F-01S-304-2021
I have three boxes of these masks on hand – I checked the lots and found one of the boxes was affected by this notice. I threw the bad box of masks away and will be reaching out for a refund.
I received no proactive notice from the website where I purchased these masks, therefore I could have been using defective N95 masks without knowing it! In the event anybody here happens to have any of these masks from the affected lots / production dates, I wanted to let everybody know.
