NC - Patients may have had transplants of tissue stolen from funeral homes
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Another 25 patients at North Carolina hospitals have been notified that they may have received transplants of human tissue that was stolen from funeral homes in New York, bringing the statewide total to more than 75 people who may have been effected.
...Biomedical Tissue Services of New Jersey is under investigation for allegedly removing bone and tissue from corpses without permission from families and selling them for reconstructive surgery. No charges have been filed
...Investigators are trying to determine whether skin, bones, tendons and other body parts were illegally removed from corpses and sold to five processing plants around the country that test, sterilize and shape the material before it is used in surgery.
Rest in Peace to my best buddy and baby, Buster ~ He crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Jan. 3, 2011. I miss you, Buster and love you with all my being.
