On November 26th, 2012, the US FDA announced a class II recall of the NexGen Stemmed Non augmentable Tibial Component, initiated by Zimmer, due to the devices being processed through a manufacturing cleaning operation that was operating outside of the validated parameters. As a result, the devices may contain residual particulate from the manufacturing process and the risks include allergic reaction due to the foreign material or late onset allergic reaction and accelerated polyethylene wear caused by third body particles.
