    FDA Issues Another Warning to DePuy

    By: Seeger Weiss LLP on January 24, 2012

    In a warning letter published last week, the Food and Drug Administration announced that fourteen types of devices sold by DePuy Orthopaedics Inc. lacked necessary approval.

    The letter, sent by Steven D. Silverman, director of the office of compliance, was the result of a near month-long inspection of the Warsaw, Indiana-based company. The inspection also found that DePuy’s quality system did not comply with FDA requirements.

    DePuy Orthopaedics Inc., a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, has been the subject of significant FDA attention in the past. In 2010, the FDA released another warning letter regarding the manufacturer’s defective hip replacements, the ASR Hip Resurfacing System and the ASR XL Acetabular Cups System. These “metal on metal” hip replacements released dangerous metal shavings in patients, often leading to debilitating pain and other health complications. DePuy recalled the hip implants in 2010, and since then, Seeger Weiss LLP has been working with victims to restore their health and recover compensation for their suffering. If you have been affected by the DePuy ASR hip replacement recall, contact Seeger Weiss today. One of our experienced attorneys will review your case for free.
