Triad Group Announces Recall of Iodine Prep Pads
Iodine is a substance that provides people with many different uses and benefits, and this substance can be purchased and used by consumers for many different reasons. However, products that provide this boost of iodine for people need to be manufactured properly, as any problems that arise with these products can prove to be extremely dangerous or worse. As such, the iodine prep pads recall announced by the Triad Group is one that should be heeded by as many people as possible.
The company initiated this iodine prep pad recall because the United States Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, has expressed concerns regarding the contamination of an organism known as Elizabethkingia meningoseptica. This organism is dangerous, and if it invades the systems of certain people who would be at risk, it could prove to be deadly in certain cases. Those who are at risk include surgical patients and those who have suppressed immune systems that make them vulnerable to viruses and bacteria.
This is not the only recent recall problem that has been encountered by the Triad Group. In 2010, the company had to issue an urgent recall of alcohol swab products because of potential contamination issues. The company was actually sued by the parents of a 2-year-old boy in Texas who died after surgery, and the parents alleged that the use of the alcohol swabs was what led to the little boy's death. The company is based in the Milwaukee area of Wisconsin and manufactures these types of cleaning products.
