The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced a recall of Greatbatch Medical’s Standard Offset Cup Impactor, a surgical tool used in hip joint replacement surgery. This recall was initiated on July 29, 2016, after the device failed testing for sterility after being sterilized in a dedicated instrument case.
This recall has been identified by FDA as a Class I recall, the most serious recall status. FDA states in its recall notice that use of these medical devices may cause serious injury or death.
If you or a family member have developed infection or complications after hip replacement surgery in which this device was used, you may have a product liability claim for compensation against the manufacturer.
