Brenntag Says Its Silicone Oils Not for Breast Implants

Don't Miss Out —
Follow us on:

Jan. 3 (Bloomberg) -- German company Brenntag AG said its silicone oils are not intended for breast implants and that it answered inquiries from French authorities in April 2010 about the supply of its products to Poly Implants Protheses, or PIP.

Brenntag has not received further inquiries from French authorities since 2010, the company said in an e-mailed statement today.

The French Ministry of Health said on Dec. 23, 2011, that women with breast implants made by PIP should see their doctors about having them removed following leakage that can lead to inflammation.
