Warning against the use of mask patches whose safety has not been verified

- Recommendation of remedial step for 49 mask patch products sold in the market -


Mask patch products* are sold in the market nowadays, and businesses advertise that they help relieve the choking feeling caused by the wearing of a mask for hours or get rid of unpleasant odor, yet their safety has not been verified; hence the need to take precaution when choosing to use them.

* Air fresheners in the form of patches attached to the outside or inside of a mask like a sticker

The Korea Consumer Agency (President Lee Hee-sook, KCA) checked total of 49 mask patch products sold online, found that none of them have gone through the risk assessment and product reporting procedure, and recommended that businesses stop selling them.
