Australia's Therapeutic Goods Administration recalls certain Ligaclip devices made by Johnson & Johnson's Ethicon Endo-Surgery division. Another Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ) product is the subject of a recall, this time from the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration. Some of J&J subsidiary Ethicon Endo-Surgery's Ligaclip devices are being pulled from hospital shelves on the risk of malformed clips failing to occlude the target vessel or structure, according to the TGA. Johnson & Johnson "identified potential clip formation and feeding issues, which may result in improper clip formation and insufficient occlusion of the vessel or other structure," according to the Aussie watchdog.
