Hundreds of human tissue products been recalled

Hundreds of human body parts, supplied by a North Carolina body parts broker, were recalled by a leading medical firm. These tissues are supposed to have a tainted history.// The products from that company were intended for transplant throughout the country!

A Raleigh funeral home director reported on Tuesday that unsterile preservation room was used by the broker to cut several corpses to obtain the tissue.

The body broker was shut down by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Friday. However, they refuse to speak on how many people could have received potentially risky tissue.

The flourishing tissue transplant industry has witnessed the second scandal within a year.

More than a million transplants are done every year, using corpse tissue, in common operations like back surgery and knee repairs. A three-month Associated Press investigation found earlier this year that though cadaver tissue is very beneficial, it is not being regulated properly.

Infections like hepatitis, AIDS and even death can be caused by improperly handled or poorly tested tissue. A scandal was reported last year. In that, Biomedical Tissue Services, a New Jersey company was accused of using stolen bodies and of shipping nearly 20,000 potentially tainted body parts.

The North Carolina incident was not revealed till late last Friday by the federal authorities, when they closed down the Donor Referral Services of Raleigh, N.C. According to the FDA, Philip Guyett’s company had "serious deficiencies" in its processing, donor screening and record keeping. He was accused, by the government, of changing records to overlook such problems as cancer or drug use by the dead donor.

According to an AlloSource spokeswoman, AlloSource of Centennial, Colo., began its own recall, on July 6th, of around 300 transplant parts supplied by Guyett that went to a company it had acquired.

Guyett, 38, was not available for comment. The
