FDA: Class I recall of Allergan Natrelle Biocell textured breast implants

By: Judy Mathias

Editor's Note

The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) on September 12 designated the recall by Allergan of its Natrelle Biocell textured breast implants as Class I, the most serious.

The recall was initiated because of a six times higher rate of breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL), a cancer of the immune system, which has been associated with these implants.
