The US Drug Watchdog says, "The biggest problem we have with national class actions involving medical devices like the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant is the average recipient never hears about the litigation, or the time lines to get signed up. What scares us the most about the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant is according to court records only a fraction of the 130,000 recipients have been identified by the federal court handling the litigation. We are also talking about recipients in all US states including California, New York, Florida, North Carolina, Massachusetts, Maine, Rhode Island, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Iowa, Michigan, New Jersey, Maryland, Texas, Oklahoma, Georgia, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Idaho, Nevada, Washington, and Oregon." The US Drug watchdog is offering all recipients of a DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant vital information about a blood test that has been designed to measure for elevated levels of cobalt, and chromium in a recipients blood stream. The group is also offering to have these blood tests analyzed. The US Drug watchdog fears tens of thousands of metal on metal hip implant recipients will get left holding the bag with a metal on metal hip implant failure, and they are doing everything possible to help these recipients get identified, and compensated, if in fact their hip implant device has failed.
