In December of 2016, a recall was made by Zimmer Biomet of its 3,662 medical device implants which were circulated between 2008 and 2015. In addition, the company took a step further and requested that health care providers pull all of its recalled implants from their inventories and to send them back to Zimmer Biomet.
The Food and Drug Administration identified the Zimmer Biomet recalled product as a Class1 recall. This means that the defective product has the potential to impose severe injuries and even death. A qualified Biomet shoulder lawyer can defend individuals and build their case.
