Reason for the Recall

Philips Respironics issued a recall on numerous sleep apnea devices because the polyurethane foam in the machine used to mitigate the machine's sound can degrade over time and release small particles that enter users' airways.

The Health Hazards

As the polyurethane degrades, it becomes toxic and can cause lung cancer, liver cancer and blood cancer. Other health risks include liver disease and kidney disease.
