The FDA issued a recall for the Zimmer M/L Taper with Kinectiv Technology Femoral Stems and Necks hip implants on June 19, 2015. Patients are at an increased risk for allergic reactions, pain, infections, or death related to high level of manufacturing residue on these implant components. The FDA states that revision surgery to replace the defective implants may be necessary.
