Tasmanians File Against DePuy

20 Tasmanians have recently filed a federal class action lawsuit against DePuy Orthopaedics concerning the DePuy ASR Acetabular Hip Replacement System. The product was declared defective and recalled last August, on account of complications that allow metal shavings to enter the blood stream and cause chromium and cobalt poisoning. These cases are similar in nature to DePuy's other metal-on-metal hip implant, the Pinnacle Hip Implant, which has also been declared defective and is the subject of numerous lawsuits.
