Allergan announces worldwide recall of Biocell textured implants

Allergan announced this morning that it is recalling its Biocell textured breast implants and tissue expanders. The move follows increased scrutiny on textured breast implants and their connection to BIA-ALCL, an uncommon lymphoma that can develop around breast implants. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requested that Allergan recall specific models of its textured breast implants from the U.S. market due to the risk of BIA-ALCL, and Allergan agreed to voluntarily issue the recall as a precautionary measure.
