The personal injury attorneys of Weaver & Associates have become aware that Johnson & Johnson’s attorneys have requested for the FDA to give them 120 days to stop their commercialization. During this time period, Ethicon (Johnson & Johnson) will be permitted time to notify consumers and customers as well as to provide hospitals, physicians and surgeons enough time to choose alternative vaginal surgical treatment options to provide to their patients. Ethicon has also announced it will discontinue all marketing materials for these transvaginal surgical mesh products.
