BREAKING NEWS RECALL: Pet First Aid Kits

Bacterial contamination prompts recall of prep pads in pet first aid kits.

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

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.

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 sales@petfirstaidkits.com 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. For more information about the recall, click here.
