NEWS UPDATE: Weitz & Luxenberg P.C. would like to inform the public that Advanced Bionics LLC, a California-based manufacturer of cochlear implants, will pay the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) $1.1 million, and the company’s CEO Jeffrey Greiner will pay $75,000, as part of a settlement agreement regarding alleged violations of federal law.
The cochlear implant maker denies it violated federal law and has not conceded to any admission of liability in the settlement agreement.
The FDA has agreed not to initiate any administrative action or refer to the Department of Justice any criminal or civil action against Advanced Bionics arising from the manufacture and distribution of the HiRes900k cochlear implant that was known to the FDA on or before November 2, 2007.
However, the Settlement Agreement is binding on the FDA only, and does not preclude any action by any other agency or governmental entity, nor does it preclude the FDA from taking any other action based on information unknown to the FDA at the time of settlement or from using the evidence described in the Second Amended Complaint in support of further actions based on additional or later conduct.
Below is earlier information regarding the the FDA's decision to seek a penalty against Advanced Bionics LLC:
On March 28th, 2008, updated April 8, 2008, the Food & Drug Administration issued a release stating that it is seeking a $2.2 million penalty against Advanced Bionics, a California-based cochlear implant manufacturer.
The fine is for violations of federal law, including manufacturing standards violations and the failure to notify the FDA of a change in an outside supplier or vendor,which may have exposed the recipients of certain Advanced Bionics devices to unnecessary health risks.
