Stryker Hip Replacement Recall News: Rottenstein Law Group Responds to Reports
That FDA Issued Warning to Metal-on-Metal Hip Maker

NEW YORK, March 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Metal-on-metal hip implant maker
Stryker announced* this week that it received a warning from the U.S. Food and
Drug Administration related to concerns about quality at its Portage, Mich.,
factory. The Rottenstein Law Group, which represents clients in Stryker recall
lawsuits, is monitoring the news with concern.

Stryker was also cited by the FDA for failing to inform the regulator of a
product recall and for marketing the Neptune Waste Management System without a
510(k) clearance, according to the Dow Jones Newswire. The concerns about the
facility stemmed from a November 2012 inspection.

"The 2012 recall of the Stryker Rejuvenate and the ABG II was voluntary, and
it occurred amid the FDA's increased scrutiny of the various metal-on-metal
hip replacement systems on the market," said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal
of the Rottenstein Law Group. "In this case, the FDA has become more stringent
in doing its duty. We welcome this."

The Rottenstein Law Group manages an informational website designed to help
those who believe they have suffered injuries evaluate if they have a case.

Stryker Recall

In July 2012 Stryker, based in Kalamazoo, Mich., announced a recall of both
its Rejuvenate and ABG II hip replacements because of a potential for
corrosion and fretting that could result in adverse local tissue reactions and
possible pain and swelling around the hip, according to Stryker's website.**

Stryker told Reuters*** that it has submitted corrective plans to the FDA.
