The FDA announced a Class I Recall — the most serious type of recall — on yet another hip implant device.

More people are choosing to have a hip replacement to give them back their mobility, improve their ability to perform daily activities, and improve their quality of life.

On June 8, 2015, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a Class I recall of the Zimmer M/L Taper with Kinective Technology Femoral Stems and Necks. The devices involved were manufactured and distributed from March 31, 2015 through April 20, 2015.
