BEWARE OF COUNTERFEIT KF FACE MASKS


Recently, we have been receiving increasing reports of fraud related to the KF face masks. KF face masks refer to filtering respirators which are manufactured in Korea and they are classified as KF80, KF94 or KF99 masks according to the filtration efficiency.

- “KF” is an acronym for Korea Filter


A substantial number of face masks, claiming to be of KF standards are being sold and distributed in Malaysia. It is important to note that not all KF face masks sold on e-commerce platforms or pharmacies are from Korea, some are manufactured in other countries without being tested and approved by the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (MFDS) of the Republic of Korea. There is a high possibility that counterfeit KF face masks provide an inadequate level of protection and are likely to be poor quality products.


If you purchased KF80, 94 or AD face masks which are not found on the MFDS database, then there is a significant risk that they are counterfeit and should not be used.


We strongly recommend you to search the product on the MFDS website before you purchase, as this will provide the greatest assurance of receiving authentic product.


Thank you.
