DePuy Recall News: The Rottenstein Law Group Responds to Another Johnson & Johnson Metal-on-Metal Hip Implant Recall

Last month, Johnson & Johnson’s DePuy subsidiary initiated another recall of a metal-on-metal hip replacement system. This latest product was the Adept, which was sold outside the United States.

Last month Johnson & Johnson initiated another DePuy recall, this time centered on its Adept line of metal-on-metal hip replacement components, according to a Feb. 14 Reuters report.* This is the second such device Johnson & Johnson has withdrawn from the market, the other being the DePuy ASR, which it recalled in August 2010. The Rottenstein Law Group notes with concern that while the device was not sold in the United States, the ASR was sold here and the evidence against the safety of metal-on-metal hip replacements in general is mounting.

Johnson & Johnson sold about 7,500 Adept components in 21 countries outside of the United States between 2004 and 2011, according to Reuters, and data showed an increasingly common device failure rate.

Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group, which is currently accepting metal-on-metal hip replacement cases, said the Adept recall shows parallels to the ASR recall, especially given the testimony during the current ASR trial in Los Angeles In re: Loren Kransky and Sheryl Kransky v. DePuy, Inc., et al. (BC456086, Los Angeles Superior Court) that indicated alleged faults in the design of the ASR hip implant.
