(PRWEB) August 27, 2012
According to a report from Mass Device, J&J 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 form the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
DePuy shut down its custom orthopedics division in January, after the FDA had inspected 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, implores anyone with a friend or relative who has received a dangerous hip implant or other 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 maintains a DePuy Hip Recall Center at http://www.depuyhiprecallcenter.com. (Attorney advertising. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.)
