On April 22, 2008, the DePuy franchise and Johnson & Johnson Medical marked the official opening of Johnson & Johnson Medical (Suzhou), Ltd., establishing production facilities in China for DePuy and the J&J Family of Companies. At 120,000 square feet (11,000 m2), this facility occupies a fraction of the J&J campus, which encompasses 69 acres (280,000 m2) in total. Manufacturing at JJM began in February 2008.
On August 24, 2010, DePuy recalled all ASR hip implant systems sold since 2003. The recall was issued after research released by the National Joint Registry (NJR) found high rates of hip replacement failure for the ASR XL Acetabular and ASR Hip Resurfacing systems.
