According to a report, French health Minister Xavier Bertrand has requested tighter controls for potentially faulty medical devices. This announcement came in the wake of the recent faulty breast implant scandal. The manufacturer of the implants was caught using industrial silicone which is cheaper to make and was banned in 2010. The implants with the industrial grade silicone have become known as PIP implants. France and other countries have recommended that anyone who has received a PIP implant have it removed.To learn more about the implant scandal, click here.
