The US Drug Watchdog says, "There are over 130,000 DePuy Pinnacle recipients who received this metal-on-metal hip implant between 2005 and 2010, and we are very focused on getting every DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipient identified, if their hip implant device has failed, is in the process of failing, or to ensure there is compensation, should the device fail prematurely. Only nine hundred people have signed up for a class action because their DePuy Pinnacle hip implant has failed, and we think the numbers should probably be in the tens of thousands, so we are initiating a public awareness campaign, that includes access to national caliber personal injury attorneys, who thoroughly understand the issues with metal-on-metal hip implants." According to the New York Times, "Until a recent sharp decline, all-metal implants accounted for nearly one-third of the estimated 250,000 hip replacements performed each year in the United States. Some 500,000 patients have received an all-metal replacement hip, according to one estimate." The US Drug Watchdog says, "If you are a recipient, or a loved one is a recipient of a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, that has already failed, or showing symptoms of a failure, or you are concerned about a premature failure, we want to get you identified, and we want to make certain you get to the best possible national caliber personal injury law firms, to ensure you receive the best possible legal advice."

Note To the US FDA from the US Drug Watchdog, "At what point does the US FDA get around to the hundreds of thousands of US citizens, stuck with a metal on metal hip implant, that could prematurely fail?"
The US Drug Watchdog is the premier medical device, and pharmaceutical watchdog in the United States.
