Recalled Body Parts?

A story on describes a company in New Jersey that was illegally collecting tissue from corpses and selling it use in transplants. Primarily bone, skin and tendons, there illegal materials had been used in thousands of surgeries around the country. This is a disgusting event and I hope they throw the perpatrators into a serious prison for a very long time.

The story says that some of the material is being recalled. It was unclear to me if that recall would include the already transplanted materials. Could you imagine getting a recall notice on a skin graft. It is bad enough when your car is recalled, but your body. That is really disturbing.

Iiiick, that's all I can say. I am with you on the idea of lengthy jail terms.
