Can My Wife/Son travel from India to USA when my VISA got transferred. They still have H4 VISA on old company name.

Asked about 1 year ago - Houston, TX

Recently my company in the USA changed their name and hence they arranged for my H1B VISA transfer from old co. name to new one. And I got the petition approved, received my I797. My family (Wife & son) are in India now and they are planning to travel to USA. However they have the H4 VISA stamped on my old company name only. Now whether Can they travel to USA with a VISA having the old comapny name?
