Recently, agents from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) visited one of our clients to inspect first aid kits for recalled items.
This inspection was part of a larger reaction to recalls from H&P industries and their sister company, Triad Group. An FDA report on the company says there have been a total of at least 10 deaths reported to the agency in the wake of a recall of contaminated products. It is believed that the deaths were related to serious hospital stays, not simply using a product from a first aid kit.
That being said, we strongly recommend removing any Alcohol Prep Pads, Alcohol Swabs, and Alcohol Swabsticks (alcohol product recall earlier this year), and Povidone Iodine products that can be traced back to this manufacturer. Consumers that have any of these types of products in their possession should not use the product and should return it to the place it was purchased. These products are usually re-branded with one of the following name brands:
|Albertson’s||Good Neighbor Pharmacy||Select Medical Products|
|American Fare||Good Sense||Smart Sense|
|Cardinal Health||Medical Specialties||Triad Plus|
|Chain Drug Consortium||Meijer||VersaPro|
|Equaline||Nova Plus||Winn Dixie- Medic|
|PSS Select||Atware Carey First Aid Kits|
