An incredible demand and shortages of  N95 respirators has forced many to go outside their normal supply chain. Back in April 2020, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) oversaw testing of these KN95 masks, the results of which found that some of these products did not meet performance standards for protection against the coronavirus. On May 7 that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) banned more than 65 of the 80 authorized manufacturers in China from exporting KN95 masks to the U.S. after tests found they were ineffective against the coronavirus.

Flooded with sales calls and emails offering KN95 inventories, MDS Associates never offered KN95’s for sale. We are however proud to announce there's something special happening here in the 716 Corridor of Buffalo New York!
