    That Osteocell Recall that happened.....how many patients received the Osteocell that was later found to be contaminated with Hepatitis B?

    Were those patients ever informed they received bad Osteocell during their XLIF's?


    Anybody have any inside information on that oopsie?

    The FDA Recall notice says 28 Lots were out in the market at the time:

    www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/EnforcementReports/ucm187541.htm

    Lots: 091327107, 091327108, 091327009, 091327110, 091327111, 091327112, 091327105, 091327106, 091327113, 091327114, 091327115, 091327116, 091327117, 091327118, 091327103, 091327104, 091327119, 091327120, 091327121, 091327122, 091327123, 091327124, 091327125, 091327126, 091327127, 091327128, 091327129, 091327130


    They created, packaged, shipped the product .....and later found out the donor had Hepatitis B. You'd think they'd screen first....to save money. Avoid such things.
