The FDA has announced recalls of Alcohol Prep Pads made by Foshan Flying of China and sold or branded by Pharmacist Choice and Simple Diagnostics, because sterility cannot be assured. These FDA notices can be found at:
- https://www.fda.gov/Safety/MedWatch/SafetyInformation/SafetyAlertsforHumanMedicalProducts/ucm587711.htm (Pharmacist Choice)
- https://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm587680.htm (Simple Diagnostics)
These two recall notices appear to apply to the same lots, but it would not be surprising to see similar recalls from additional distributors; see https://nwrnbulletins.wordpress.com/2017/09/06/recall-towelettes-alcohol-pads/.
