What’s the problem?
February 16, 2011 – A recent lawsuit filed in federal court claims that a two year old boy died as the result of a contaminated alcohol prep pad manufactured by Triad Group, Inc. According to the claim, the boy’s deadly meningitis infection was caused by Bacillus cereus bacteria in a contaminated pad. Triad Group announced a nationwide recall on all lots of its alcohol pads and swabs one month after the boy’s death.
The boy’s mother, Sandra Kothar said, “The missing piece of the puzzle came when the FDA announced the recall for the Triad alcohol pads and swabs for the exact bacteria contamination that killed my son. These alcohol wipes are used every day in hospitals, clinics and homes. People think they’re safe.”
According to the FDA recall, “use of contaminated Triad Alcohol Group Prep Pads, Alcohol Swabs or Alcohol Swabsticks could lead to life-threatening infections, especially in at-risk populations, including immune suppressed and surgical patients.” Click here to view the official FDA recall announcement.
