The PIP breast implant recall was issued on March 30, 2010 by France's health regulators. Women with PIP implants are finding its not always clear who will cover the cost.

The breast implant recall involved all pre-filled silicone implants manufactured by Poly Implant Prothese (PIP), a company based in southern France.

The recall was expanded to PIP implants exported to Italy, Australia, and Great Britain. It is initially estimated 35,000 to 45,000 women worldwide are affected, but the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons estimated 50,000 British women have the implants.

AFSSAPS, the health regulatory agency of France, discovered an unauthorized type of silicone gel being used in the pre-filled implants. Following the recall, the French court ordered the company to shut down entirely for the manufacturing of fraudulent implants.

Women with PIP implants have been advised to have a to undergo an ultrasound scan in the next six months, to determine whether there is any rupture or weakening. If any is found, the woman will then be advised to have the implants removed.
