Dateline NBC investigated the actions and conduct of Sulzer Orthopedics, a leading producer of hip and knee implants worldwide. A major flaw in their manufacturing process triggered one of the most devastating medical device recalls in recent times. Not only did Sulzer mislead the public, but the company withheld key facts from the Food and Drug Administration. After the recall, the company began to recycle the faulty hip devices and put them back on the market.
