Where do I go to find more information from Philips, regarding the recall?

Visit for the devices that are affected, as well as more information on the recall. To speak to a local Philips representative, call 877-907-7508.

What is the time period for the recall?

The recall dates back to 2009.

Why was there a recall?

The reason for the recall is due to a sound abating (noise reducing) foam found in certain devices that may break down and release chemicals into the tubing, which could be inhaled. The foam can deteriorate and cause harmful effects when cleaned in the wrong way or when exposed to high heat and humidity.

How do I register my device?

Philips has created a registration process that will allow patients, users, or caregivers to look up their device serial number and begin a claim if the unit is affected. You can look up your device to see if it is on the list and begin the registration process at
