I have read where the flu shots were contaminated in the UK and hence there is a huge shortage of them...


I have not been able to find out what kind of contamination occured --

anybody know ???

Synopsis:
There was a breakdown in the quality-control regimen at the manufacturing plant. It was reported last week that it was extremely unlikely that any of the vaccine was actually contaminated, but since the QA/QC protocols were violated, the entire productino was stricken. The US FDA sent a team to GB last week to inspect the plant and its procedures.

Will see if I can find a link to a story.
