WHISTLEBLOWERS CLAIM BREAST IMPLANT MANUFACTURER ENGAGED IN COVER UP WITH RESPECT TO DEFECTS

May 25, 2005 | www.Newsinferno.com

Two former employees of Mentor Corp., a manufacturer of breast implants, have come forward with allegations that the company covered up evidence of high rupture rates and that workers would hide defective parts in the ceiling to avoid detection by their superiors.

These former employees claim that senior executives in the company told them to destroy reports detailing high rupture rates and that packaging for the implants was sometimes infested with fleas. The actual rupture rates far exceeded those reported to authorities according to one of the whistleblowers.

A criminal investigation of Mentor was closed in 2002 and recently the company won a recommendation from federal scientific advisors that it be permitted to resume sales of its implants under certain conditions.
