Johnson & Johnson Orthopedic Device Recalled Due To Risk Of Fractures.

A device commonly used in reconstructive knee surgery was recently recalled by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).  The recall is a Class I recall, which is the most serious class of recalls.

The recalled device is manufactured by Johnson & Johnson’s orthopedic unit, Depuy.   The defective devices subject to the recall were manufactured from 2008 to 2012.

The defective product has been recalled because of its potential to fracture, which could result in infection, soft tissue injury, loss of limb or even wrongful death.

The device subject to the recall is called LPS Diaphyseal Sleeve. The FDA has received and investigated ten incident reports in which the orthopedic device did not function properly and caused pain or discomfort.
