Wayne-based RAM Medical also placed on three years probation during Tuesday’s federal court hearing and must pay nearly $73,000 in restitution. The company buys overstocked and discounted products from wholesalers and suppliers around the globe and resells the items to distributors and companies in the United States.

The firm had pleaded guilty in December 2011 to a complaint charging it with one count each of introducing adulterated medical devices into interstate commerce and introducing misbranded medical devices into interstate commerce.

As a special condition of probation, RAM Medical will undertake responsibility for locating and destroying all of the counterfeit mesh it imported.
