Immediate Class I recall for all counterfeit mesh implants.

In March 2016, the FDA received a citizen petition from attorneys in Texas who are requesting an immediate Class I recall for all counterfeit mesh implants. They claim that these devices have high levels of toxic selenium and want the FDA to approve any alterations in materials. In June 2010, the FDA issued a Class I recall for products that were incorrectly identified as C. R. Bard/Davol mesh and sold from October 2008 to October 2009.
