Lawyers investigate claims following further recall of ‘Assurity’ and ‘Endurity’ Abbott Laboratories pacemakers

A further product recall has been issued by Abbott Laboratories for its ‘Assurity’ and ‘Endurity’ pacemakers, informing clinicians that a manufacturing issue could cause harm to patients.

Posted on 01 December 2023

This is the third recall since 2021 that Abbott Laboratories (formerly known as St Jude Medical) has issued regarding these pacemakers, and the company is urging patients who may be affected to use its online checking tool to see whether their pacemaker could be defective. The most recent recall, issued in October 2023, follows two previous recalls:

  • October 2023: Assurity and Endurity Pacemaker Equipment
  • July 2022: Zenex, Assurity, and Endurity Pacemaker Laser Adhesion
  • March/October 2021: Assurity and Endurity Pacemaker Header

The online checking tools for the 2021 / 2022 recalls can be found here.

Product safety and consumer law specialist Michelle Victor (Partner) and her team are investigating claims on behalf of those who have been given potentially faulty pacemakers manufactured by Abbott. Michelle and her team are renowned for pursuing large scale group litigation against multi-national companies for defective products and have recovered millions by way of damages on behalf of their clients.,

Michelle Victor said:

β€œIt is disappointing that Abbott Laboratories has had to issue yet another safety recall due to manufacturing potentially defective devices. I would strongly encourage anyone who has Assurity or Endurity pacemakers to check as soon as possible whether their device is affected, and to contact us at Leigh Day if you think you may have grounds for a legal claim.”
