Recalled Alcohol Prep Wipes Lead to Life-Threatening InfectionsPosted by in Defective Products | How to Lose Your Accident Case
Have you or a family member contracted a serious infection following a procedure at a hospital or doctor’s office that involved prepping the site with an alcohol wipe? If so, you may have a legal case against the manufacturer of the wipe.
A truly massive recakk of Triad Alcohol Prep Pads has been issued. The original recall in January 2011 was rather limited, however, as months have gone by, the recall has grown. Triad Alcohol Prep Pads, Alcohol Swabs can be identified by the manufacturer Triad Group. They have also manufactured these products for sale by companies such as Walgreens, CVS, Smith & Nephew, GlaxoSmithKline, Eli Lilly and others. These products may be contained in various “kits” used by nurses and doctors, such as IV prep, blood draw and procedure kits.
The Triad products were contaminated with Bacilus cereus, a bacteria that is normally soil dwelling. Normal symptoms of Bacilus cereus infection would include diarrhea, nausea and vomiting. At least one death has been linked to these contaminated products.
If you suspect that you or a family member was infected with Bacilus cereuas and you suspect it was caused by use of a contaminated alcohol prep, please contact the Law Offices of Todd N. Hendrickson, P.C. at www.hendricksonlaw.com.
