In this short note we translate the best available observational bounds on the CMB bispectrum amplitudes into constraints on a specific scale-invariant new physics hypersurface model of vacuum state modifications, as first proposed by Danielsson, in general models of single-field inflation. As compared to the power spectrum the bispectrum constraints are less ambiguous and provide an interesting upper bound on the cutoff scale in general models of single-field inflation with a small speed of sound. This upper bound is incompatible with the power spectrum constraint for most of the parameter domain, leaving very little room for minimal cutoff vacuum state modifications in general single-field models with a small speed of sound.
