FDA withdraws approval of some mask makers in China to sell in U.S.

May 7 (Reuters) - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Thursday announced that it has canceled the approval for some manufacturers in China to sell N95 respirators in the United States, as they failed to offer adequate protection against the new coronavirus.

A number of these respirators failed to demonstrate a minimum particulate filtration efficiency of 95% upon testing, the agency said. (bit.ly/35JPxQW) (Reporting by Manojna Maddipatla in Bengaluru; Editing by Shailesh Kuber)
