Another Hip Replacement Recall Announced By Manufacturer

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on July 8, 2012

Smith & Nephew PLC, a British company that manufactures a metal hip socket liner for hip implants, has announced that it is recalling liners used with its R3 Acetabular System hip device. The liner became available in 2009 and has been implanted in around 7,700 patients in Great Britain. This voluntary recall came after clinical trials with the device showed a higher rate of failure than previously thought. Smith & Nephew reported that they are “not satisfied with the clinical results” after many recipients of the device required corrective surgery to remove the liner on their hip replacement implant due to chronic pain and reduced mobility.

CPSC Issues Drop-Side Cribs Recall

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on October 13, 2011

On September 29, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued a recall for around 2,300 drop-side cribs in the United States, and Health Canada has recalled another 800 in Canada. The recall affects drop-side cribs made by Sherman Inc. due to risks of entrapment, suffocation and fall hazards. The CPSC advises anyone who owns one of these cribs to stop using it immediately as the drop-side rail hardware used in construction of the cribs can break or fail, allowing the drop-side to become detached from the crib. If this occurs, a dangerous gap is created between the drop-side and the mattress, potentially trapping and hurting or suffocating an infant.
