The shipment was seized as its country of origin was not declared and the masks were supposedly ”made in Italy,” even as they were entering Italy via the port.

The indications on the masks could mislead consumers, in violation of Italian law, which is why they were confiscated by the Customs Police.

Authorities suspect that the masks would be sold on the Italian market as coronavirus preventative masks.
