This issue tried to consult the store customer service on the “exceeding the standard”, and the reply obtained is:
The 9600 mask belongs to the dust mask, not a medical surgical (sterile) mask.
Hong Kong has a wrong standard for testing, and the mask quality is fully compliant with the national standard GB 2626-2006.
The customer service also provides a statement to this issue. In addition to the set of error standards, the statement indicates that the mask seized by the Hong Kong customs is not in the box bulk product, and the storage environment is bad.
In accordance with the mask type description of the National Health and NETRACE PRODUCTION and the Protection of Novel Coronary Virus Infection Prospects, this journal has read the relevant standards, which is approximately as follows:
In summary, this magazine does not see the words “medical surgery” “aseptic” in the 9600 mask packaging and related promotional pages. The standard name of GB 2626 is “respiratory protective article self-suction filter anti-particulate respirators”, and the standard does not mention the requirements of “total number of bacteria”.
However, at the official website of Guangzhou Baozhuobao Co., Ltd., we pay attention to the introduction of the 9600 mask: “Automatic ultrasonic production process, enclosed in a sterile dust-free workshop, every mask is clean. Our mask No sewing, reducing the traditional sewing process of human hand pollution. “

GB 2626-2006 has been invalid?
In addition to the “bacterial exceeding standard”, this magazine discloses in accordance with the disclosure information, the implementation of the mask is found in the “invalid” state. The current standard is GB 2626-2019, and the implementation date is July 1, 2020.
According to the customer service reply, the old standards and new standards are in the transition period (one year), the old criteria are still valid, and the formal implementation date of the new standard is July 1, 2021.
Finally, we will remind consumers to avoid buying and using a bulk mask, if you find that the surgical mask is stainless or odor, you should stop using it.
Considering that “mouth masks” is still universal consumer behavior, “consumers report” will continue to pay attention to the latest developments. Quality issues related to protective products such as masks, consumers can also pay attention to the sampling information of “consumers report”.
