Philips Replacement Breathing Machines Recalled
Millions of Philips Respironics CPAP, BiPAP and ventilator breathing devices were recalled by the FDA in 2021 after the company admitted an industrial foam in the machines could disintegrate and emit toxic particles into user airways. Now, even as Cohen & Malad, LLP continues to file suit against Phillips on behalf of harmed consumers from that recall, a ProPublica investigation reports its happened AGAIN.
Most recently, there are claims that a different foam used in the Philips DreamStation 2 and millions of other replacement machines was found to potentially emit dangerous chemicals as well, including formaldehyde.
