Keller Rohrback Investigates Worldwide FDA Recall of Allergan’s BIOCELL Textured Breast Implants
Keller Rohrback is investigating reports that Allergan’s BIOCELL textured breast implants put patients at greater risk of breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL). On July 24, 2019, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requested that manufacturer Allergan recall specific models of the textured implants, and issued a safety communication to patients outlining what steps patients should consider when monitoring for symptoms of BIA-ALCL.
Allergan responded to this request with a worldwide recall of several BIOCELL textured breast implant products and tissue expanders, including the following:
- Natrelle Saline-Filled breast implants
- Natrelle Silicone-Filled breast implants
- Natrelle Inspira Silicone-Filled breast implants
- Natrelle 410 Highly Cohesive Anatomically Shaped Silicone-Filled breast implant
- Natrelle 133 Plus Tissue Expander
- Natrelle 133 Tissue Expander with Suture Tabs
The FDA has identified 573 cases of this type of lymphoma, including 116 cases since February 2019 alone. Of these cases, 481 are attributed to the implants. 33 patients have died of this type of cancer, 12 of whom had Allergan implants at the time of diagnosis.
If you have BIOCELL textured breast implants and are concerned that they put you at greater risk of BIA-ALCL, please contact us at email@example.com or (800) 776-6044 to discuss your potential legal claims.
