Here’s some key indications to spot a fake N95 mask:

  • Filtering facepiece respirator has ear loops instead of headbands
  • No approval (TC) number on filtering facepiece respirator or headband.
  • NIOSH Label and Official Number on the Mask or Head Straps itself and on the packaging
  • Sometimes NIOSH is misspelled on the label
  • NIOSH approved masks never come with decorative fabrics or sequins
