What Is the Issue with Recalled Phillips CPAP Machines?
The Recalled Philips CPAP machines were recalled after discovering that many customers were inhaling poisonous foam due to a significant problem within their machines. Inhaling this poisonous foam can lead to serious health issues, including cancer. In addition to cancer, which is obviously terrible and absolutely unacceptable, there are reports of these symptoms:
Has a Philips CPAP Lawsuit Been Filed?
Yes, a class action lawsuit was launched against Philips, located in Massachusetts, in June 2021. According to the lawsuit, Phillips was aware of the hazardous foam and the serious health problems it was causing for years. Several reports have consumers complaining about the problems for years, but Philips did not issue a public warning until April 2021. Philips did not publicly recall the devices for another two months until June 14th, 2021.
Interestingly, Philips did not disclose the recall of their devices until they were about to release a fresh product. Many patients who severely needed these devices had no alternative but to purchase the newer machine, implying that Philips profited even after Philips CPAP recall was made public.
What is alleged in Philips CPAP Recall Lawsuit?
One of the reasons people filed complaints against Philips was because the equipment they sold to patients was defective and harmful. When the foam dissolves, it is toxic enough to cause cancer. This alone could be enough to justify a lawsuit.
Plaintiffs also allege a failure to warn claim. While they not only used dangerous materials in their machines, they also failed to let the public know there was an issue. According to some reports, patients have actually been complaining about these machines for many years. In fact, they issued a public warning in April of 2021 that the foam used in these machines was causing health problems. Nevertheless, they choose to do nothing about it until June of that year. Leaving patients to utilize machines they knew could cause health issues and harm.
