Using expanding foam around pipes

i have a number of pipes from the boiler which go into the ceiling space through a hole in the ceiling. Is it feasible to fill the holes around the pipes with expanding foam? The holes are too close together for plastering and think of another solution. Are there any issues with doing this? The can doesn't say you can't.
