The CPAP recall lawsuits against Philips have spawned a new group of related satellite lawsuits against SoClean, Inc. SoClean is a company that makes a product that is specifically used to sanitize the recalled CPAP devices. So far around a dozen lawsuits have been filed against SoClean alleging that that company falsely marketed that their product was “safe” and “healthy” to use for sanitizing CPAP machines and other breathing devices. According to the lawsuits, SoClean’s product was not safe because it omits harmful levels of ozone gas which exceeded the maximum safe limits set by the FDA.

The SoClean lawsuits have been filed in 7 states including Texas, Georgia, Mississippi, Kansas, and Louisiana and they come after manufacturer Philips recalled millions of its CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) breathing machines due to sound abatement foam that can degrade and release harmful chemicals. Earlier this month, a new Philips CPAP recall MDL was created in the Western District of Pennsylvania.
