Stryker Trident Hip Replacement Recall
The Stryker Trident hip replacement recall was issued in January 2008. The recall involved two hip replacement cups – the Trident Acetabular PSL Cup and the Trident Hemispherical Cups – made at the Stryker facility in Cork, Ireland. Acetabular Cups are used in the socket portion of replacement hip components. At the time of the recall, the Trident Acetabular PSL Cup was the most commonly used Stryker cup in the United States.
Stryker said it issued the Trident hip implant recall because of concerns that the components could be contaminated with “manufacturing residuals” at levels that exceed company sterility standards. However, the company said at the time that the problems did not affect the sterility of the components, and that patients who had received the recalled Trident components would not need to have them replaced.

According to the letter, which was issued after an inspection of the company's Mahwah, New Jersey manufacturing facility, Stryker failed to adequately address the problems.
