St. Jude Medical (STJ) only sent a warning to doctors in December 2010 about insulation problems with the wires used with its Riata defibrillators, at least five years after the company first encountered the flaws and two years after an internal audit had specifically identified the issue, the WSJ reports. Riata was withdrawn in 2011.
