Some Filtering Facepiece Respirators Concern FDA

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is concerned that certain filtering facepiece respirators (respirators) manufactured in China may not provide consistent and adequate respiratory protection to health care personnel exposed to COVID-19.

  • Instructions for reporting problems with respirators to the FDA.
