Robins Kaplan Mass Tort attorneys are investigating serious patient burn injuries related to the Megadyne Reusable Patient Return Electrodes Recall.

On July 18, 2023, the FDA issued a notice titled “Megadyne Recalls MEGA 2000 and MEGA Soft Reusable Patient Return Electrodes for Risk of Serious Burn Injuries to Patients.”1 The recall was initiated by Megadyne Medical Products, Inc., a company bought by Ethicon Endo-Surgery, a Johnson & Johnson MedTech subsidiary, in 2017.2

MEGA 2000 and MEGA Soft reusable patient return electrodes are soft pads used in certain surgeries to reduce the risk of excessive heating when an electric current is used to heat, cut tissue, or stop bleeding.3

Reason for Recall

The recall is in response to at least 63 reports of both pediatric and adult patients receiving burn injuries during surgeries.4  Some injuries are as serious as third-degree burns requiring medical intervention, longer hospital stays, and scarring.5
