  • The expansion followed the discovery that the PE-PUR foam used in devices in the original recall was also used to make some Trilogy Evo ventilators.
  • The FDA has categorized this expanded recall as a Class 1, the most serious type of recall.

FDA Safety Communications Update

These devices are being recalled due to a potential health risk. Polyester-based polyurethane (PE-PUR) sound abatement foam was used in the affected Trilogy Evo ventilators.  The recalled ventilators were distributed to customers in the United States and Korea.

There have been no reported injuries or deaths to date.

The issue, as with the original devices recalled, the PE-PUR sound abatement foam used to reduce sound and vibration may break down and potentially enter the device’s air pathway. Should this occur, black debris from the foam or certain chemicals released into the device’s air pathway may be inhaled or swallowed by the person using the device and lead to serious health issues. This potential led the FDA to classify this as a Class I recall, its most serious type of recall.

More information can be found at the Potential Health Risks from Sound Abatement Foam section of the FDA Safety Communications Update.

As always, you should speak with your health provider about any symptoms or concerns you have.
