The US Drug Watchdog says, "Sometimes the most heartbreaking thing about trying to help victims of a poorly made medical device, or a bad pharmaceutical product is the victims never hear about a recall, or horrific side effects. In August of 2010 DePuy Recalled their all metal hip implant called the ASR. Some recipients received a letter from Johnson and Johnson's representatives, and we think many ignored it. There are about 30,000 US citizens who have this specific type of recalled hip implant, and according to the Los Angeles Times on January 25th 2013 only about 10,000 recipients have been identified by the court handling the litigation over this recalled hip implant. We do not want any US citizen who has one of these devices left holding the bag for a hip implant that prematurely fails, so we are urging recipients of a all metal hip implant that was installed between 2005, and 2010 to check to see if it was a DePuy ASR, and if the answer is yes, please call us at 866-714-6466." As a background on all metal hip implants, according to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "The wear of metal parts against each other is generating debris that is damaging tissue and, in some cases, crippling patients." The US Drug Watchdog is urging any recipient of a now recalled DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant to contact them immediately, if this is the first they have heard about the recall, or the litigation. http://USDrugWatchdog.com
The US Drug Watchdog is the premier pharmaceutical, and medical device watchdog in the United States. The group says, "We want to make certain all DePuy ASR hip implant recipients get to attorneys that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients. We do not want any recipient of a recalled DePuy ASR sitting on the curb with a mess that was not their doing-if it is in our power."
