Accurate Set, Dental Products Company, Shut Down By FDA

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON -- Federal health officials say a New Jersey company has been legally barred from making and selling a variety of dental products due to violations at its manufacturing facility.

The Food and Drug Administration says a court order against Accurate Set requires the company to discontinue operations until the agency has verified its dental implants meet federal standards.

FDA inspectors found numerous quality control violations at the company's factory in Newark, N.J., during a recent inspection. The company did not have systems in place for reviewing customer complaints or correcting defective products, among other missing requirements.

The company is not currently manufacturing devices and will have to pass an FDA review process before resuming operations.

A consent decree between the company and the FDA was signed by a judge last Thursday.
