Ross Feller Casey, one of the nation’s premier medical malpractice and product liability law firms, is actively investigating lawsuits against Aziyo Biologics, Inc. for injuries caused by a recalled product, FiberCel Fiber Viable Bone Matrix, which was tainted with tuberculosis.

What is FiberCel?

FiberCel is a malleable bone putty made from human tissue and used in various orthopedic and reconstructive bone-grafting procedures. It is manufactured by Aziyo Biologics, Inc., a publicly-traded company based in Silver Springs, Maryland.

Why was FiberCel recalled?

In early June 2021, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced a recall of FiberCel after reports surfaced that some of the more than 100 patients treated with the product had suffered serious injuries. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, along with state health agencies, have launched investigations into the outbreak.

At this point, the recall revolves around one manufactured lot of the product produced from a single donor, believed to have had tuberculosis. The lot consists of 154 units of FiberCel that were shipped to 37 medical facilities in 20 states between March and April 2021.

Of the units, 136 were implanted into 113 patients. Eight have died after their procedures, according to the CDC.

Ross Feller Casey represents the family of one Pennsylvania woman who died after being treated with FibeCel from the recalled lot.

In the wake of the recall, Aziyo has suspended all sales of FiberCel.

The Washington Post reported that companies manufacturing such tissue products typically test donors for HIV, hepatitis C and other infections commonly spread by implantation. Aziyo never tested donors for tuberculosis, a potentially deadly disease that affects the lungs, because the infection is so rare in bone grafts, the paper reported (read the story).
