Phillips DreamStation 1 News?

Phillips DreamStation 1 News?
Are our American friends aware of the problem that is supposed to have developed with the DreamStation 1 (White). The issue relates to the sound abatement foam breaking down. Is this legit or not.

Received this email from my CPAP supplier this morning here in Australia, see below. He has also released a Youtube video detailing the issue.

News Release

Hi everyone, this information was released by Philips 30th of April and relates to Philips Dreamstation 1 users. It is my understanding that USA has stopped all sales at this stage and ordered Asia Pacific and Australia to follow suit. They will clarify more in the next couple of weeks, and we will keep you posted.

"Philips has determined from user reports and testing that there are possible risks to users related to the sound abatement foam used in certain of Philips' sleep and respiratory care devices currently in use. The risks include that the foam may degrade under certain circumstances, influenced by factors including use of unapproved cleaning methods, such as ozone [1], and certain environmental conditions involving high humidity and temperature. The majority of the affected devices are in the first-generation DreamStation product family. Philips’ recently launched next-generation CPAP platform, DreamStation 2, is not affected. Philips is in the process of engaging with the relevant regulatory agencies regarding this matter and initiating appropriate actions to mitigate these possible risks. Given the estimated scope of the intended precautionary actions on the installed base, Philips has taken a provision of EUR 250 million."
