ConsumerBell Weighs in on Breast Implant Recall
By now, you’ve probably heard that over 300,000 silicone breast implants are being recalled by French authorities, mainly across Europe.
News of the French recall spread quickly over the past couple weeks when major media outlets spread the story. The recall affects implants that contain Poly Implant Prosthese (PIP), a brand of silicone.
Much of the concern around this recall, though, stems from the implant manufacturer going out of business in 2010.
