Canadian suits filed against Depuy

Three more class action lawsuits have been filed in Canada against Johnson & Johnson and its subsidiary, DePuy Orthopaedics, over recalled DePuy ASR metal hip implants
The DePuy hip replacement class action lawsuits were filed this month across Canada, and seek to represent the 1,500 Canadians who received DePuy ASR XL Acetabular System and ASR Hip Resurfacing System implants from 2006 until they were removed from the market in August.
These latest lawsuits follow at least two other DePuy ASR class action suits filed in Canada in November, one of which also included claims for individuals implanted with certain Zimmer hip replacements and Stryker hip replacements.
