In October 2019, a class action-lawsuit was brought against Allergan, the maker of dangerous breast implants linked to cancer. The lawsuit claims that Allergan does not plan to monitor at-risk individuals for breast implant cancer, even though the FDA issued a recall due to risk. Other similar lawsuits have been filed against the company in recent years. The suit involves the company’s BIOCELL textured breast implants, which are linked to cases of breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma. The Allergan lawsuit also alleges that victims are being misled and asked to sign their rights away by the manufacturer.
