Marshals raided H&P Industries, which makes alcohol wipes
and other products distributed by Triad Group. This company was
the source of several recent large-scale recalls and CHPSO
Patient Safety Alerts. The manufacturer ceased production after
yesterday’s raid. Below is a partial listing of the recalled
latest FDA inspection report lists several other products of
concern, including hemorrhoidal suppositories, benzalkonium
swabsticks and psyllium husk products.
Important note: manufacturers of many of the recalled kits are
noting that the medication or device is not defective, and that
it can be used by discarding the recalled prep pad and using an
alternative prep method. Please check the recall notice for each
item for the specific manufacturer recommendations.
