On Sept. 1, Philips announced that it has received authorization from the Food and Drug Administration to “rework” the recalled first-generation DreamStation devices by replacing the sound abatement foam with a new material. Philips anticipates that the repair program will begin this month.
The company also confirmed that it already has begun replacing certain recalled devices with DreamStation 2 devices, which have a different, silicone-based foam that is not included in the recall. Philips indicates that it intends to complete the repair and replacement programs within approximately 12 months.
