The masks had been in storage for over 10 years. They had been released despite an expiry date being passed. 

The Geneva University Hospital found a fungus in a test batch. Since all masks can’t be tested, they’re all being recalled. 

In all, over 13 million masks were handed out. They will be replaced free of charge.
