GAO calls DePuy recall high-risk

Posted on June 30th, 2011 No Comments

Earlier this month, the Government Accountability Office issued a report covering 21 high-risk medical product recalls issued between 2005 and 2009.  The report includes recalls where a company was unable to correct or remove the defective products.

The report scrutinizes the federal health regulators and their ability to track unsafe medical devices after recalls. ¬†According to the report, regulators’ inability to keep track of the recalled products only puts patients at greater risk of health complications.

Senator Charles Grassley stated, “The FDA can’t tell if recalls of high-risk devices were carried out successfully because it lacks criteria for assessing device recalls and doesn’t routinely review recall data.”

The DePuy ASR hip replacement recall was cited in the report for affecting around 93,000 hip implant patients all over the world.

If you or someone you love has suffered from complications after having a recalled DePuy hip replacement, contact the DePuy hip replacement recall lawyers of Williams Hart at 800-761-3187 to speak with one of our attorneys.
