Earlier this year, I reported about the potential dangers posed to senior citizens (and others) who were potentially exposed to bacteria from antiseptic wipes. Reports indicate that a child may have died from such exposure and we are aware of seniors who appear to have potentially met the same fate. Now, Federal regulators say that although Professional Disposables International (PDI) of Orangeburg, New York promised to recall the product this past June, it has since failed to launch that recall nearly four months later.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a second statement last Wednesday saying the agency was not backing down on its assertion that PDI failed to follow through on its promise to conduct a recall in June. A follow up story from the Journal Sentinel Online addresses some of the recent developments in the enforcement action.
