3M says it continues to see counterfeit, overpriced masks being sold

3M Co. on Tuesday said it was working with authorities worldwide and e-commerce marketplaces to curb price gouging, fraud, and the selling of counterfeit masks and its other healthcare supplies used to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. "3M has received reports of people fraudulently representing themselves as being affiliated with 3M, selling 3M products at grossly inflated prices, selling counterfeit products falsely claimed to be from 3M and falsely claiming to manufacture 3M products," the company said in a statement. "We are working with law enforcement authorities around the world on this matter, including federal, state, and local authorities in the U.S." In addition, e-marketplace operators and 3M are coordinating efforts to remove the false or price-gouging listings from their site, the company said. The company has created a hotline to call for information on how to help identify authentic 3M products and to ensure products are from 3M authorized distributors. The number in the U.S. and Canada is 800-426-8688. 3M also said its has doubled its global output of N95 respirator masks, in high demand worldwide, to an annual rate of more than 1.1 billion, or about 100 million per month.
