Manalapan, NJ - Parent Units, manufacturers of childproofing and safety products, learned today that the Triad Group failed to notify Parent Units directly and/or indirectly through its distributors that its product, Triad Alcohol pads, had been recalled.
In a January 5, 2011 release, the FDA stated, "Triad Group, a manufacturer of over-the-counter products has initiated a voluntary product recall involving ALL LOTS of ALCOHOL PREP PADS, ALCOHOL SWABS, and ALCOHOL SWABSTICKS manufactured by Triad Group but which are private labeled for many accounts to the consumer level. This recall involved those products marked as STERILE as well as non-sterile products. This recall has been initiated due to concerns from a customer about potential contamination of the products with an objectionable organism, namely Bacillus cereus. We are, out of an abundance of caution, recalling these lots to ensure that we are not the source of these contamination issues."
Parent Units has included the pas with its products; Safety Straps, Topple Stop and Anit-Tip Anchoring System; as a cleaning device for use prior to the installation of these products.
"Consumers should discard the Triad Alcohol products at once; in conjunction with the Triad recall. In lieu of using the pads, consumers can simply use a cotton ball and rubbing alcohol in its place," Gary Lee, president of Parent Units said. "Additionally, any retailers who carry the items: Safety Straps, Topple Stop, or our Anti-Tip Anchoring System, should not ship the product without removing the Triad Alcohol Pad. Replacement alcohol pads, from another manufacturer will be sent so that the products can be retrofitted. Effective today, Parent Units will no longer ship any product containing Triad Alcohol Pads."
