Merchant Law Group LLP has launched Canada-wide class action litigation against Allergan, the manufacturer of Biocell textured breast implants, seeking financial compensation on behalf of all Canadian women who have been implanted with a Biocell textured breast implants, have had a Biocell textured breast implant removed, or were diagnosed with anaplastic large cell lymphoma after being implanted with a Biocell textured breast implant.
Health Canada suspended Allergan’s licences for Biocell textured breast implants after a 2017 safety review on breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) found that the rate of BIA-ALCL in Canada is significantly higher in patients with macro-textured breast implants, including Allergan’s Biocell textured breast implants, than other implants. Subsequently, Allergan recalled all Biocell textured breast implants.
