Bacteria Contamination Prompts Recall Of Prep Pads In Pet First Aid Kits

Both iodine and alcoholic prep pads are being recalled by Creative Pet Products of Spring Valley, Wisconsin.

Certain alcohol and iodine prep pads in Creative Pet Product’s dog and horse first aid kits are being recalled.

Creative Pet Products of Spring Valley, Wis., is recalling the iodine and alcohol prep pads included in its first aid kits for dogs and horses because the pads may be contaminated with bacteria.

The company is recalling alcohol pads in the following kits:

10140 Horse Aid Kit

10145 Sporting Dog Kit

10148 Sporting Dog II Kit

10151 K9 First Aid Police & Military Kit

All lot numbers are involved and the alcohol pads are branded either Triad or Nova Plus.

The company is recalling iodine pads in the following kits:

10140 Horse Aid Kit

10145 Sporting Dog Kit

10148 Sporting Dog II Kit

Lot numbers starting with 8, 9, 0 and 1 are involved in the recall.

The iodine pads are branded either Triad or H&P Industries.

Creative Pet’s recall follows recalls issued earlier this year by the pads’ manufacturer, Triad Group of Hartland, Wis. Triad, which is also known as H&P Industries Inc., recalled the pads due to concerns that the alcohol pads were contaminated with Bacillus cereus and the iodine pads were contaminated with Elizabethkingia meningoseptica. The use of contaminated pads could lead to life-threatening infections, according to Triad Group.

The recalls started first with human-use prep pads and have expanded to the pet-use prep pads.

Creative Pet Products is advising consumers to remove and destroy the recalled alcohol and iodine prep pads in their first aid kits. Customers should send an email to receive a replacement. In the email, customers should include their name, address, place of purchase, and the pad’s brand name and lot number.
