Antiseptic Wipes Recalled for Possible Bacterial Contamination

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 5-Apr-2011

Reports say Smith & Nephew's Advanced Wound Management division recently announced a U.S. voluntary nationwide recall of some alcohol prep products, such as pads, wipes, and swabs over concerns about potential microbial contamination.

The contamination by possible Bacillus cereus could lead to life-threatening infections, especially in at-risk people such as immune suppressed and surgical patients. Smith & Nephew announced the halt of all shipments of IV PREP Antiseptic Wipes manufactured by The Triad Group and is advising all customers and patients to discontinue use of the recalled IV PREP Antiseptic Wipes immediately because of possible infection.

The possibly contaminated wipes were manufactured for Smith & Nephew by The Triad Group, which is being named in medical device litigation concerning the wrongful death of a toddler via the contaminated pads, reports say.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
