DePuy Hip Replacement Recall Will Now Include Unused Custom Hip Implants
August 28, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News(New York, NY, August 28, 2012) The Rottenstein Law Group, which represents clients with claims stemming from the failures of defective hip replacement devices manufactured and sold by various companies, is working to spread the word about the recall of all unused custom orthopedic implants manufactured by DePuy Orthopaedics.
According to a report from industry Web site Mass Device, Johnson & Johnson subsidiary DePuy Orthopaedics, manufacturer of several embattled models of hip replacement devices – including the recalled ASR systems – has now recalled "all unused units of its [custom] orthopedic implants" in compliance with a request from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
DePuy ceased production of its custom orthopedic devices in January, after the FDA had inspected the company's facilities and "identified concerns with the implants, and further asked the device maker to take steps to retrieve all remaining unused devices, according to a DePuy letter sent to physicians," Mass Device reports.
Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group, says, "We implore anyone with a friend or relative who has received a dangerous medical device to reach out to that person and recommend that he or she consult a physician immediately and then speak to a qualified personal injury lawyer."
The Rottenstein Law Group lawyers have a total of more than 25 years of experience fighting for the rights of clients who have suffered harm due to the negligence of powerful corporations.
