US Customs seizing KN95 masks and PPE coming in from factory.
April 3, 2020. As of last night, no legitimate KN95 mask manufacturer in China will export KN95 masks and PPE (personal protection equipment) such as face shields, hospital gowns, etc as US Customs has raised the specter of seizure at the border under the Eminent Domain clause.
What is Eminent Domain?
Eminent Domain is the right of a government or its agent to expropriate private property for public use, with payment of compensation.
In short, ED, means that any product or property, if the US Government wants it for their use and sale they have a perfectly legal ability to seize your incoming products.
In this case, specifically large orders of KN95 masks and all hospital goods such as face shield, paper gowns, bootie covering etc.
The ONLY allowable goods still to come in from this category is shown BELOW.
- Protective masks. 3 ply. see here.
- Hand Sanitizer. see here
- KN95 mask orders of 1000 (no more/no less) see here
Watch this explanation to understand better. Thanks
Our best advice!
If you have an order with a LEGITIMATE supplier or factory please check with them. The will tell you the same thing. If they don’t be on guard.
If you are considering ordering anything from some company you are not fully trusting and experienced with, “run for the rhubarb!”

Direct Information from Chinese Factories and Exporters. Received Last Night.
We got a news from our forwarder this morning, we are forbidden to export the PPE products start from April. Only government and the government authorized trading company who dealing with medical products can export the PPE.
There are too many unprofessional people involved, stirred the waters too murky, difficulty see the truth. Factory get full pay and air company get full pay before their service, who will be responsible if quality issue, delay or missed part of goods, no one except us and you. Many factories has certification here, but they are all fake when import to USA custom.
At your service,
USA government announced on Mar. 30th:
“The KN95 mask is a Chinese alternative to the scarce N95 mask, but the FDA refuses to allow it into the country.”
You can’t do custom clearance successfully there , goods taken at Customs….
( KN95 mask Manufacturers and forwarders here don’t accept orders ship to USA now ).
Small QTY is possible for you, 1000 can get in for you.
John, our factory used to make the simple surgical gowns but now we stop to make it instead of mask here.
PS: you find another sure supplier has the ability to ship out the goods here since CHINESE government control the exporting more strict from April 1st. This is Emergency here.
