Medical products company shuts down in Hartland


HARTLAND, Wis. (AP) -- A medical products maker in Hartland ceased production Monday after the U.S. Marshals Service arrived to quarantine or seize 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.

The company has been sued by a Texas couple who blame it for the death of their 2-year-old son. They claim an alcohol wipe made by the company was the likely source of an infection that killed their son in November.
