AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Aaron and Tracy Massey of Kenmore, Washington have filed lawsuit against Triad Group of Hartland, Wisconsin,  H&P Industries Inc., Evergreen Hospital Medical Center in Kirkland, Wash., and repackaging and distribution companies including the Harvard Drug Group dba Major Pharmaceuticals and Cardinal Health 110, as well as unknown health care workers, after one of their twin sons developed a rare Bacillus cereus infection that caused severe brain damage.

Since January 2011, the FDA has received reports of eight death, 11 life-threatening infections, hundreds of problems associated with Triad alcohol and providone iodine prep products and sterile lubricating jelly, MSNBC reports.

The lawsuit alleges that Triad wipes were included in the newborn care kit used to treat Myles Massey after his premature birth and  to clean the top a vial of injectable medicine.

According to the complaint, government inspectors found potential contamination problems with Triad and H&P in 2000, 2002 and again in 2006. An FDA official admitted in June that the FDA should have issued a formal warning to H&P in August 2010 instead of letting the company pursue voluntary corrections for years, before finally taking action in 2011 to seize products and stopping production through a court order.

The lawsuit is seeking to obtain financial support for Myles who currently requires round the clock care, and will require life time care. disclaimer: This article: Lawsuit Filed Against Triad For Baby Brain Damage was posted on Tuesday, July 12th, 2011 at 7:38 pm at and is filed under Medical Device Lawsuits.
