Reuters reported on February 14th, 2013 that Johnson & Johnson recalled the DePuy Adept Hip Implants the previous month as the devices were failing at a higher than expected rate. British data revealed that the Adept implants needed to be replaced in about 12 percent of patients after seven years.
As the United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation reported, on January 14th 2013, there were 3,040 actions pending in the DePuy Orthopaedics Inc., Pinnacle Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation (MDL 2244, U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas) and 7,200 actions pending in the DePuy Orthopaedics Inc., ASR Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation (MDL 2197, U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio). In August 2010, Johnson & Johnson announced that its subsidiary DePuy recalled the ASR hip replacements.
