The Kalamazoo-based medical device maker Stryker is recalling some hip surgery products.
The move comes a week after the Food and Drug Administration warned Stryker about problems with the products, made at a plant in Cork, Ireland.
The recall covers the Trident PSL and Hemispherical Acetabular Cups.
The FDA has ordered Stryker to fix a host of long-standing problems in the making of hip replacement parts.
The defects have triggered multiple patient complaints and have forced some to have follow-up surgeries.
