Action Heritage Labs sent a Device Notification and Safety Alert letter dated January 12, 2011, to all affected customers.

Heritage Labs sent replacement alcohol prep pads from a different supplier not affected by the recall to user of Heritage Labs kits. Heritage Labs recommended the replacements be on "as needed" basis. Upon opening kit, users should immediately dispose of sealed TRIAD brand alcohol pads. Users are to use the replacement wipes instead of the wipes contained in the kits. For any questions call (888)764-4120.
