Medical products company shuts down in Hartland


HARTLAND (WKOW) -- A medical products maker in Hartland shut down Monday after the U.S. Marshals Service arrived to quarantine materials.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports H&P Industries, which makes alcohol wipes and other products under the name Triad Group, has been under investigation by the Food and Drug Administration.

Last week, the FDA asked H&P Industries to voluntarily stop production of its drug products. A Triad Group spokeswoman confirms that production was stopped Monday and that U.S. marshals were there.

A couple from Texas is suing the company blaming it for the death of their 2-year-old son. They claim an alcohol wipe made by the company was the likely source for an infection that killed their son in November.
