The US Drug Watchdog says, "The DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant litigation has begun in California, and what has us horrified is according to the Los Angeles Times about 10,000 DePuy ASR recipients have been identified by the courts in California, or Ohio. Court records now indicate about 30,000 US recipients of the DePuy ASR all metal hip implant. What this tells us is there are another 20,000 US recipients out there, who should get identified, and we will suggest law firms that can help."
