Attorneys General Ask 3M to Take Additional Steps in Effort to Supply Health Care Workers with PPE

  • A group of 20 Democratic AGs, led by Virginia AG Mark Herring, sent a letter to 3M urging it to increase its efforts to combat price gouging on N95 masks and to increase the availability of the masks to health care providers.
  • The letter praises 3M’s efforts to increase mask production and the assistance it has provided to law enforcement in identifying price gougers.
  • The letter urges 3M to take further steps, including publishing policies that prohibit its distributors from price gouging, creating a database of 3M’s N95 masks for the use of government agencies and health care providers, and making the process of allocating N95 masks more transparent.
