Just this Wednesday, the FDA requestioned a recall of an Allergan inc. breast implant. According to the FDA, the implant is linked to a rare form of cancer. The FDA issued the requested after seeing a disproportionate share of lymphoma in women who had the product. This is following actions made by other countries such as France and Canada. So far, the FDA has not recommended women get their implants removed if they are not experiencing any issues. The implants have a textured surface to help prevent scar tissue, however, these textured models only make up 5% of the breast implants used in the United States.
