Stryker Hip Replacement Recall
On July 6, 2012, Stryker Orthopaedics announced that it was going to recall hip replacement models Rejuvenate and ABG II due to a defect that could result in device failure, and potentially permanent or lasting localized and systemic injuries.
The recall was made in response to increasing numbers of injury reports from recipients of these hip replacement implants. The injuries reported were related to a defective design in which two parts of the hip replacement could rub together and experience corrosion, resulting in the release of toxic heavy metal particles. The reports are apparently sufficiently alarming that Stryker has decided not only to recall all current implants, but discontinue sale of the implants worldwide.
A corporation like Stryker Orthopaedics has a responsibility to ensure their products are safe before marketing them. When they fail to live up to that responsibility, they should pay for injuries caused by their defective and dangerous product.
