FBI Investigates Power Morcellators

 In Defective Medical Devices Blog

power-morcellator-fbiThe Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is investigating Johnson & Johnson, the world’s largest maker of power morcellators.

The company is under investigation to determine how much it knew about the cancer-spreading risk associated with its medical devices.

Power morcellators are surgical devices that were highly favored by members of the medical establishment because they were considered to be less invasive than traditional uterine and ovarian surgeries.

In 2014, numerous reports about the dangers of the devices led to a worldwide recall of the power morcellators on the market manufactured by Johnson & Johnson.

As countless individuals stepped forward with horrifying stories, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and medical professionals began to discourage the use of power morcellators.

Though Johnson & Johnson did pull the products off the market, at issue is when the company first became aware of the cancer-spreading risk of their devices.

Numerous reports surfaced in 2014 that doctors and other professionals attempted to tell Johnson & Johnson in 2006 that the devices were dangerous, that women were contracting cancer and that the company should at least warn patients about the dangers of the devices.

The FBI investigation may lead to both criminal and civil charges against Johnson & Johnson.
