The US Drug Watchdog says, "We are urging all recipients of the recalled DePuy ASR, and or DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, that is subject to national litigation to start getting blood tests to see if their cobalt, or chromium levels are elevated. If the hip implant recipients blood test reveals elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium we want them to call us immediately so we can get them identified to the best possible law firms." The DePuy ASR was recalled in August of 2010 because of a very high failure rate, and the DePuy Pinnacle is now the subject of a national class action over failure rate issues. Between the DePuy ASR, and the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant there are about 180,000 recipients in the United States. To insure no recalled DePuy ASR hip implant recipient, or no DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipient gets left on the curb, holding the bag for a problem they did not create the US Drug Watchdog is doing everything possible to alert all recipients of about premature failure issues associated with these metal on metal hip implant devices. For more information recipients of a DePuy ASR, or a DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant are urged to call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.com
