Alcohol Prep Pads Recall – Deadly Bacteria

susan_harr5 years ago

Professional Disposables International Inc. (PDI) has recalled all lots of their non-sterile alcohol prep wipes due to the possibility that they are infected with the deadly bacterium, Bacillus cereus. PDI is now the second company to recall alcohol prep pads this year- the firm reportedly shares a common supplier with a Triad Group, a company that is facing several lawsuits over illnesses and deaths linked to recalled wipes and swabs contaminated with the same bacteria.

Bacillus cereus

“Although Bacillus cereus is known mainly as an agent of food poisoning, other infections caused by this organism have been documented in immunocompromised patients,” Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Bacillus cereus is a potentially deadly bacterium that may cause:

  • Skin infections
  • Wound infections
  • Sepsis
  • Pneumonia
  • Meningitis
  • Death
