British firm recall knee implants27th November 2007
A British firm has recalled knee implants after they were found to contain too much iron.
Smith & Nephew said around 275 patients had been fitted with the implants from the TC-PLUS, VKS and RT-PLUS ranges and it was trying to trace another 300 implants which have been supplied to customers in Europe. It said the iron content, which was due to a production error at a supplier’s factory, was not expected to cause any health problems and the recall was a precautionary measure.
