The US Drug Watchdog says, "About 40,000 DePuy ASR's metal on metal hip implants were installed on US citizens between 2005, and 2010. The DePuy ASR was recalled in August of 2010. Only about 3400 individuals have been identified so far by the Ohio Federal Court handling this issue. We believe the number of DePuy ASR recipients that get identified to the federal court in Ohio should be closer to at least 30,000, so we are going to pull out all of the stops to make certain that is what happens." The US Drug Watchdog is urging all recalled DePuy ASR recipients to call them, so the group can explain everything they know about metal-on-metal hip implant failures, the DePuy ASR hip implant failures, and the group can recommend actual national caliber litigation law firms, that are competent, articulate, and passionate about helping the victims of the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant get compensated. The US Drug Watchdog's biggest fear is the DePuy ASR litigation will come to an end, a final sign up date will come, and go, and tens of thousands of DePuy ASR recipients will get left holding the bag, with little to no recourse, if their DePuy ASR hip implant fails in a few years, after the actual settlement.

The US Drug Watchdog says, "The DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implant was recalled in August of 2010, because of a high failure rate in this metal-on-metal hip implant device. There are about 40,000 DePuy ASR recipients in the United States, and only about 3400 individual DePuy ASR hip implant recipients have been identified by the federal court in Ohio, that is handling the litigation for this recalled hip implant. At this point, we do not care if a recipient's recalled DePuy ASR hip implant has failed, or not, we think it is vital to get every recipient identified by the federal court in Ohio, and we can suggest national caliber attorneys, for every recipient. Our biggest fear is once the federal litigation involving the DePuy ASR is over, and the individuals signed up get their settlement, it gets much more difficult for new victims of a DePuy ASR failure to get anything." Symptoms of a recalled ASR DePuy hip implant failure include pain in the hip region, problems walking, swelling of the hip, lack of flexibility in the area of the hip, or elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in the blood of the hip implant recipient. The group says, "We say, if you received a recalled ASR DePuy hip implant, even if it has not yet failed, you are probably owed, and we will try to help you find the best possible law firm to help you. Please call us anytime at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
