Description

An investigation by the Kansas City Star found that the Food and Drug Administration should have had some knowledge of flu vaccinations contamination, based on a previous investigation of the same British company five years ago. According to the investigation, FDA inspectors should have been suspicious of the company when they found instances of contamination in 1999. Inspectors discovered the company "was mixing samples of highly contaminated unfinished vaccines with cleaner batches to reach lower bacteria levels."
