Sharon Rockett has filed a lawsuit in Madison County Circuit Court against Triad Group Inc., Carefusion Corp., H&P Industries, Genenteck Inc., RGH Enterprises(dba Edgepark Medical Supplies), and the Cancer Treatment Centers of America Inc., alleging they are all responsible for the death of her husband, Garry W. Rockett, who died from complications of a bacillus cereus infection.

According to the lawsuit, Rockett received tainted Triad alcohol prep pads distributed by Carefusion and Edgepark Medical Supplies from the Cancer Treatment Centers in PleurX Drainage Kits. Rockett’s widow alleges that the problems with the contaminated Triad pads should have been discovered at some point in the supply chain.

Triad wipes were recalled in January, 2011 by H&P after bacillus cereus was discovered in alcohol prep pads, swabs and swabsticks. The products involved in the recall were used in hospitals, packed with medications, and sold under different labels including Walgreens, Cardinal Health, and CVS.

The FDA issued a permanent injection against H&P from doing business until it is established that systemic problems have been resolved and its products are safe, after the agency received 8 reports of deaths, 11 reports of infection, and over 200 complains of various problems associated with the Triad wipes and swabs. disclaimer: This article: Illinois Wrongful Death Lawsuit Filed Against Triad was posted on Thursday, July 28th, 2011 at 7:00 pm at and is filed under Medical Device Lawsuits.
