A news outlet is reporting Triad Group is closing their health care line – “at least for now.” In the latest announcement regarding the contaminated alcohol wipes recalled earlier this year, MSNBC.com reports that the manufacturer of the alcohol prep pads is “moving away” from their health care division. The health care division produced the alcohol wipes that were recalled due to the discovery of the bacteria Bacillus cereus. The same line also produced lubricating jelly that was recalled in December 2009 due to sterilization concerns. The article also identifies several problems listed in FDA inspection documents concerning other Triad products. Click here to read the complete article.
As consumers learn more about the recalled alcohol wipes, discussions are increasing on social media outlets, discussion boards and blogs.
