About the Philips CPAP Recall Lawsuits

In June 2021, medical device company Philips issued a massive recall of nearly all of its Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) and Bi-Level Positive Airway Pressure (BiPAP) devices. The recall was initiated due to concerns about potential health risks associated with the use of foam used in the devices’ sound abatement foam. The foam may degrade over time, leading to the release of particles and gases that could be inhaled or ingested by the user.
