A Class-Action Suit Over Recalled Products

Patients are speaking out about a surgical device called Physiomesh Flexible Composite Mesh, which was used in Canada up until last year, when it was recalled and pulled from the market over concerns about higher rates of complications. The product is made by Ethicon, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson. It became available on the Canadian market in September, 2010.
