May 11 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration asked Johnson & Johnson, which is already facing more than 1,000 lawsuits over hip replacements, to study whether its implants raise the level of metal in patients’ blood to dangerous levels. The FDA on May 6 sent the request to J&J and 20 other device makers, including Biomet Inc., Stryker Corp. and Zimmer Holdings Inc., asking them to conduct so-called postmarket surveillance of the hip replacements. Bloomberg's Shannon Pettypiece talks about the request with Betty Liu on Bloomberg Television's "In the Loop." (Source: Bloomberg)
