February 22, 2013 – A Class I recall has been issued by DePuy Orthopaedics. This time the product involved is a device used in conjunction with the LPS System, an end-stage revision knee product. Reportedly, the defectively-designed device can malfunction, which may lead to possible loss of function, loss of limb, soft tissue damage, infection, or even death. This is not the first time DePuy has been in hot water. The Johnson & Johnson-owned company is defending lawsuits around the country for their defective hip implants, the ASR and PINNACLE models.
