FDA and CDC say stop using N95 respirators made by Shanghai Dasheng

Aug. 27, 2021

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an alert in which it said providers should stop using N95 respirators manufactured by Shanghai Dasheng Health Products Manufacturing.

The FDA’s action came after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) revoked all respirator approvals previously issued to Shanghai Dasheng because the company did not implement, maintain, and control a quality management system.

The FDA said providers can check the NIOSH approval numbers, which are available on the FDA’s website, to see if the products they have in stock are no longer approved by NIOSH.
