Infarmed announced today that Xi Ke masks from manufacturer Anhui Xinke Sanitation Equipment Manufacturing (Sweden) were banned because they do not have CE marking or labelling .

The National Authority for Medicines and Health Products says that in Portugal there were no records of the sale of medical devices by this manufacturer in Portugal, but it justifies the alert given "that there is free movement of products in the European Economic Area".

In the note posted on their website, the regulator asks that the detection, in Portugal, of these masks be reported to the Infarmed Health Products Department.

Due to the covid-19 pandemic, the use of a mask has been mandatory since the end of October in closed indoor spaces with several people, in commercial or service establishments, in public buildings, in schools and daycare centers, in public transport and in places around outdoors as long as it is not possible to ensure adequate physical distance.
