Much like Stryker Corporation’s Rejuvenate and ABG II metal hip implants, hip implant devices manufactured by DePuy have also been recalled from the market after causing serious harm in thousands of patients. In 2010, the FDA issued a worldwide recall of the DePuy ASR 300 Acetabular Cup System.

This metal hip implant device was implanted in an estimated 93,000 patients worldwide prior to the recall.

In 2013, DePuy and its parent company Johnson & Johnson announced a major settlement agreement related to the ASR hip implant system. The companies set aside $2.5 billion to settle approximately 8,000 individual lawsuits brought by injured patients, that required revision surgery after receiving a DePuy ASR metal hip implant device.

In 2015, DePuy and Johnson & Johnson announced a second settlement agreement worth $420 million with patients that were not included in the original 2013 agreement.
