Reason/Issue Johnson & Johnson Medical Pty. Ltd. (JJM) is issuing a device recall of the Charnley Pin Retractor & Handle Set due to the potential for breakage of the small extraction peg away from the pin. Analysis of the pegs from the above affected lots identified the existence of microscopic cracks in the weld region. This could lead to decreased strength and a greater risk of instrument fracture under what would be normally acceptable conditions.
