PIP UPDATE

The PIP controversy continues. You may recall that these were the toxic breast implants in France that have been recalled and are being replaced.

It was learned the that Italian plastic surgeons association is suing the manufacturer of PIP implants. That’s a win for attorney’s. I believe PIP declared bankruptcy.

They are also suing a German company TUV Rhenland, which apparently certified the implants with the industrial grade silicone.

(I guess if we were talking about cleaning products industrial grade would be ok.)

There also is a German company that sold their PIP implants under the name T; BREEZE. Where did that come from?

Fortunately, only 728 of these were sold and none in the United States.
