SoClean Class Action Lawsuit Claims CPAP Cleaning Machines Not Safe For Human Use

Case joins other SoClean class action lawsuit filings, alleging consumers were misled about the safety of the CPAP cleaning machines

A class action lawsuit filed earlier this week claims that SoClean CPAP cleaning machines are not safe, since they emit high levels of ozone gas that should not be used around by humans or animals.

Dale Vernon, Sr. filed the complaint (PDF) on Monday in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio, seeking class action status to pursue damages on behalf of himself and other purchasers of the CPAP cleaning machines.

SoClean has been marketed as a safe way to sterilize and deodorize CPAP machines, which are used by individuals with sleep apnea. However, to be effective at cleaning the CPAP machines, SoClean uses high levels of ozone gas, which may pose serious health risks for consumers, according to allegations raised by Vernon.

The lawsuit alleges that SoClean deceived consumers by claiming what the devices emitted was “activated oxygen.” In reality, which SoClean later admitted, the devices were emitting high levels of ozone, which is the principle ingredient of concern in smog.

“The SoClean devices work by generating ozone to sterilize and deodorize CPAP machines. Ozone (O3) is an unstable toxic gas with a pungent characteristic odor that can kill bacteria and viruses,” Vernon’s lawsuit notes. “To be effective as a germicide, ozone must be present in a concentration far greater than can be safely tolerated by humans or animals.”

Vernon indicates he purchased a SoClean 2 CPAP cleaning device in 2017, to clean his ResMed CPAP machine. He says he paid a premium price because of how SoClean presented “activated oxygen” as being safe and effective. Vernon’s complaint says he would not have purchased the device if he’d have known the truth about its ozone emissions and the potential health risks they represent.

The class action seeks to damages for all individuals nationwide who purchased SoClean CPAP machines, indicating that the manufacturer’s false representations have actually deceived and harmed individual consumers.

Concerns About SoClean CPAP Cleaning Devices

The complaint joints a growing number of SoClean lawsuits seeking class action status, which have been brought since concerns about the safety of the machines that emerged last year, in the wake of a massive Philips CPAP machine recalls.

Philips Respironics recalled millions of CPAP sleep apnea machines that contained a polyester-based polyethylene sound abatement foam, which has now been found to degrade and break down, releasing toxic particles directly in the users air pathways. This has been linked to a number of severe and potentially life-threatening side effects for users, including a potential risk of cancer from the Philips CPAP machines.

At the time of the recall, Philips made several statements suggesting that ozone CPAP cleaners like SoClean may cause the sound abatement foam to break down. While SoClean has maintained that the foam problems were the result of poor design choices by Philips, and not their sanitizing machine, many lawsuits allege that SoClean withheld information about the side effects that result from the high levels of ozone gas necessary to clean a CPAP.

In January, the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation centralized all SoClean CPAP sanitizing device lawsuits in the Western District of Pennsylvania for pretrial proceedings as part of a MDL, or multidistrict litigation. The cases are centralized before U.S. District Judge Joy Flowers Conti, who is also overseeing a MDL established for the growing number of Philips CPAP lawsuits filed over injuries and exposure to the toxic sound abatement foam.

    I've had the so clean about five years, maybe even more. I never heard about the lawsuit until I got a new machine and needed to get a new adapter. I'm now worried about using it all time and assuming it was safe like they stated. How do I join the lawsuit?

Needless to say, I need to keep searching. I have had a ResMed C-Pap Machine for about 6 years and a So Clean Machine for about 4 years. I must admit, I had no idea there was a lawsuit pending against So Clean. I would also like to be added to this lawsuit. Last year, I developed a chronic cough that started in April and finally went away the end of November. I thought it was just seasonal allergies, but it wasn't. I was taking "Pearls", Tessalon, for months to keep it under control. My Pulmonologist sent me for a CT Scan and it came back showing little black flecks all over in my lungs. She couldn't figure it out. I have never smoked and I try to stay away from people who do. We did have a lot of fires around our area the year before, so she thought maybe that was it. This is why I am desperately trying to find that article. My friend sent it to me months ago and it is somewhere in my thousands of emails. She tried to find it at her end, but hasn't so far. If any of you find it, please send it to my email above. Thank you, I will be seeing my Doctor here again in the next month or so after I have another CT Scan. Some of you mentioned getting another cleaning machine for your C-Pap. Could you please list some suggestions? Thank you. I am sorry so many of you have suffered these terrible side effects and will keep you in my thoughts. Now that I know this sight is here, I will check back to see updates and hopefully good news as well. Take care.

    I purchased the SoClean cleaner in early 2016 for my Resmed 10 based upon the company's marketing about its effectiveness and that it used "activated oxygen". I had no idea that the "activated oxygen" was actually harmful ozone. I have now quit using my SoClean. In 2018 I was diagnosed with leukemia (CLL), although I have no idea if there is any connection with using SoClean.

    I'm interested in being included in a class action lawsuit for the So Clean machine. Have used one for years.

In the past few weeks the hose between the CPAP reservoir and the SoClean has been disconnected apparently by air pressure and emptied the reservoir onto my bedside table. I ha since disconnected the SoClean.

    Started using Soclean several years ago to sanitize RESMED S9 Escape CPAP and experienced nasal problems and required surgery for swollen polyps prior to COVID 19, still experiencing congestion in throat and believed it may also have caused adult asthma.

    I bought a So Clean Machine about 3 or 4 years ago and did not know it was causing damage to my ResMed C-Pap Machine until last week when I purchased a new C-Pap Machine. I was told if I used my So Clean Machine that it would void the warranty and I would pay the company $1200.00. I do not appreciate Respracare who is now Family Medical Supply not contacting me about this, not to mention I paid $[Show More]I bought a So Clean Machine about 3 or 4 years ago and did not know it was causing damage to my ResMed C-Pap Machine until last week when I purchased a new C-Pap Machine.

    Worried about the ozone that permeates the room during the cycle and stays in the Climaline tubing and mask for days afterwards.

  • Ruby LisaJuly 25, 2022 at 9:55 pm

    I used the SoClean machine and paid good money for it. It caused my CPAP machine to be recalled. Causing potential damage to my lungs and risk of cancer. I would like to join the class action suit against the manufacturers if SoClean. They should be hel accountable for false advertising.

    I have used a So Clean for over a year and now have a constant cough.

    I have been using the SoClean machine since I started using my CPAP. I paid top dollar for it and was told and retold it was completely safe to clean my CPAP machine with. That was somewhere around 6-7 years ago.

Since then I’ve questioned what the odor is coming off do the machine when the cleaning cycle is finished and the odor which I’m actually breathing in when I use my CPAP. I was told it was just “off-gasing” and not to worry. I didn’t t quite accept that and started running my CPAP for at least 10 minutes before I would wear it. I use my CPAP every night without fail and use the SoClean very often and I’ve been questioning why my health is continuously getting worse. I have developed a chronic, mostly dry cough for several years now and chronic sinusitis. My daughter keeps asking me why I’m not seeing my doctor about my wheezing. I wake up every morning with a bad headache, which, thank heaven, doesn’t last super long. Along with some other medical issues, I’ve basically stopped going out day or night and I’ve almost forgotten what it feels like to be a normal human being! I would like to believe that there is an answer to my situation.
