Philips Faulty Respirator Recall
One of the lawyers, Chris Seeger, handling the mass claim against Philips, said that Philips lied about the devices' safety up to the June 2021 recall, despite warnings from its suppliers to stop using polyester foam in its masks to reduce noise in 2016. 'People are still using these defective machines even though we're dealing with a Class 1 recall operation,' he said. This follows the FDA reporting 21,000 cases between August to October 2022, and 91 more deaths. Philips says it is currently negotiating with around 60,000 people who have filed claims.
