View all

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced that Johnson & Johnson is recalling some of its Craniomaxillofacial Distraction Systems used to correct defects of the jaw.

About the Jaw Implant Recall

According to CNBC, Johnson & Johnson is recalling the jaw implants after more than a dozen cases of injury.

The implant may reverse after surgery. Infants are at the highest risk for injury by the device (Craniomaxillofacial Distraction System) because if it fails, sudden obstruction of the trachea can occur, which may lead to respiratory arrest and death.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has classified the recall as Class 1, meaning the product may cause serious health problems or death.

Description of Recalled Jaw Implants

  • The jaw implant is used to lengthen and stabilize the lower jawbone and the side of the lower jaw.
  • The recall has been classified as Class 1 type.
  • The recalled jaw implant is known as the Craniomaxillofacial Distraction System
