    Biomet 3i has identified a visually observable condition which may be present on a limited number of the identified implants. the condition is caused by the implant coming into contact with residual machining fluid which was not adequately degreased from a portion of 1 lot of packaging cylinders. the residual machining fluid causes the implants to be discoloured. biomet 3i has determined that there are no known health effects of the residue. this has been confirmed through cytotoxicity and endotoxicity tests, which have yielded negative results for toxins on residue-affected samples.
