Transvaginal surgical mesh device manufacturer C.R. Bard, Inc. and its parent company, Becton, Dickinson and Company, have agreed to pay $60 million to 48 states and the District of Columbia to resolve allegations of deceptively marketing the devices.  The company’s surgical mesh—which are permanently implanted to hold up falling organs, and which are extremely difficult or impossible to remove—had life-altering side effects that they failed to disclose, including chronic pain, recurring infections, and shrinking tissue.  Although the devices were taken off the market in 2016, under the terms of the settlement, C.R. Bard and Becton, Dickinson and Company are required to adhere to certain injunctive terms if they choose to reenter the market.  The funds received as part of this settlement will be added to a larger restitution fund that was established after settlement of a similar case with Johnson & Johnson in 2019.  CA AG; FL AG; WA AG
