Philips recalls some "CPAP", ventilator machines on U.S. market due to foam part

AMSTERDAM, June 14 (Reuters) - Philips, the Dutch medical equipment company, on Monday said it would recall ventilators and “CPAP” breathing devices from the U.S. market due to a foam part that might degrade and be inhaled.

The company said that though the matter would cause “revenue headwinds” in its sleep & respiratory care division, that would be compensated by strength in other businesses and it left its full year financial guidance unchanged. (Reporting by Toby Sterling; Editing by Christopher Cushing)
