CooperVision Complies with FDA Request

In a news release, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that CooperVision, a division of Cooper Companies Inc, has complied with their request for a widen recall effort of their Avaira Toric contact lenses.

CooperVision initiated a recall of their Avaira Toric contact lenses in August, however faced pressure from the FDA because the agency believed that the company had not done enough to educate the public of the recall. The FDA has since announced that the company has come into compliance with their request.

FDA spokeswoman Morgan Liscinsky said, “CooperVision’s public communications are consistent with the agency’s expectations. The FDA will continue to monitor this recall’s effectiveness to ensure that the affect devices are removed from the marketplace and not used by consumers.”

Whether the move by CooperVision is based solely on the FDA request or was monetarily based, the company saw a stock decrease of almost $5 a share Monday, though the stock remains up 23 percent for the year, has not been commented on by either the FDA or the company.

As a Bellingham personal injury attorney, I’ve seen many similar recalls in the past and am glad that the appropriate steps have been taken to inform the public of this situation. If you’ve been injured through the use of a defective product, it may be in your best interests to contact a personal injury lawyer to learn more about the legal avenues open to you.

Former DePuy Spokeswoman Sues Over Defective Implant

News sources reported that a former spokeswoman for the DePuy artificial surface replacement (ASR) implant has joined the class-action lawsuit against DePuy’s parent company Johnson & Johnson after the hip she modeled, and encouraged others to receive, was found to fail prematurely.

The former spokeswoman began advertising for DePuy in 2004 after receiving the ASR implant in the effort of relieving her arthritis pain. In 2009, she claims the implant left her in constant pain and that she experienced a “clunking” sensation when she walked. Doctors informed her that her ASR implant had prematurely worn out and that it would need to be removed. She has since received a replacement unit manufactured by a different company.

DePuy announced a global recall of their ASR Hip Resurfacing System and ASR XL Acetabular System in August 2010.  In May of this year, federal actions against DePuy and Johnson & Johnson over the Pinnacle hip replacement devices were consolidated for pre-trial proceedings in multidistrict litigation. The claimants in these cases allege that the Pinnacle devices were defectively designed and that DePuy failed to adequately inform patients of their inadequacies.

As a Seattle personal injury lawyer, I’ve seen recalls similar to this in the past and understand the significant impact that these defective devices can have on people’s lives. If you have been adversely affected through the use of a defective medical device, contact a personal injury lawyer in your city to discuss your legal options.
