Between 2003 and 2015, 3M manufactured the Dual-Ended Combat Arms™ Earplugs that were distributed to thousands of military personnel. In a recent settlement agreement with the United States Department of Justice, 3M agreed to pay $9.1 million to resolve allegations that they knowingly sold defective earplugs to the U.S. military. These settlement proceeds will not be distributed to military personnel. Our law firm, along with experienced referral law firm partners, are pursuing civil lawsuits to obtain compensation for hearing loss damages.

Research has found evidence that links a common firefighting foam with the development of cancer in its users. Those that have been exposed to the dangerous chemicals by ingesting them orally, absorbing them through the skin, or inhaling them through the air are at risk of developing various types of cancer. If you are a veteran of a military base or a resident who lived near a military base and subsequently developed cancer from exposure to the firefighting foam, fill out our free case review to see if you are eligible for compensation without ever going to court.

Philips CPAP and BiPAP Recall

On June 14, 2021, Philips issued a recall of specific Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), BiLevel Positive Airway Pressure (BiLevel PAP) devices and mechanical ventilators because of potential health risk related to the particles and gases emitted from the foam use to mitigate noise. These devices treat sleep apnea, a relatively common condition that occurs when the upper airway becomes obstructed during sleep.  

The foam inside of the CPAP and BiPAP machines decompose over time and leave tiny particles inside of the devices. In addition to particles, the degradation of polyurethane foam leads to the emission of dangerous, carcinogenic gases that lead to cancer.  According to their website, Philips states that high humidity and temperature as well as unapproved cleaning methods can exacerbate the degradation.

Philips admits that it has received several complaints concerning the presence of black debris and particles however, it has not received any reports regarding the effects of chemical emissions and no fatalities have been reported from the use of these devices.  Nevertheless, there are side effects that you could experience from foam degradation, such as:

· Adverse effects to organs, such as liver failure and kidney failure

· Toxic carcinogenic effects leading to cancers, such as lung cancer

· Skin, eye, and respiratory tract irritation

· Chest Pressure

· Cough

· Headache

· Sinus infection

· Inflammatory response

· Asthma

· Dizziness

· Nausea

· Vomiting

It is currently difficult to say exactly how common these health risks are from the use of the Phillips devices. But it is recommended that you talk with your doctor about the Philips CPAP recall, especially if you are experiencing any health issues that you believe could be related to the recalled device.

The following CPAP and BiLevel PAP Devices are affected by the recall:

Veterans may also have been exposed to these recalled devices in a VA hospital or clinic. Note that your status as a veteran does not hinder you from pursuing legal actions against Philips and it would not affect your benefits.
