New Foam in Once Recalled Philips CPAP Machines May Still Be a Hazard | Spring Hill Phillips CPAP, BiPAP and Ventilator Machines Device Recall Lawyers Whittel & Melton

January 12, 2022

In June 2021, Philips CPAP, BiPAP and ventilator machines were recalled for potentially toxic foam called PE-PUR that could degrade and be inhaled or ingested by users resulting in serious damage to the nervous system and other organs and even cause cancer.

Philips began replacing their nearly 15 million devices that were recalled in September 2021. But now the FDA has flagged another issue with the replacement foam.

Philips started replacing the PE-PUR foam with a silicone-based foam, and the FDA has now said that the silicone foam used in a device outside of the United States has failed a safety test for what is called volatile organic compounds or VOCs.

The FDA did say that they have yet to conclude whether the silicone foam poses any risks to users in the U.S.

The agency has ordered Philips to conduct independent testing on their new silicone-based foam and will inform the public of the results when they become available.

The FDA has also said that people who have already received their replacement devices should not stop using them.
