AG: Wyoming state company lying about masks

**Editor’s Note: A previous version of this article implied the business is in Wyoming, Michigan. It’s actually in the state of Wyoming.

LANSING, Mich. (WOOD) — The Michigan Attorney General’s Office has warned a business in Wyoming state to stop falsely marketing the types of face masks it sells, also sending it a cease-and-desist letter for price-gouging and other Michigan Consumer Protection Act violations.

The Attorney General’s Office says it sent the letter to Seek Everest LLC, an online business, Monday after receiving a complaint from an anesthesiologist at Sparrow Hospital in Lansing.

Authorities say Seek Everest tried selling the medical worker a mask that it claims was an N95, saying it was approved by the Food and Drug Administration and was “medically sterile.”
