Radio host Alex Jones dedicated a significant portion of his show last week when he first covered the story. How can companies be allowed to make such ridiculous and potential devastating "mistakes?" If the average person "accidentally" sent bird flu through the mail, he would either be killed or be spending the rest of his days in solitary confinement. There is absolutely no way a mistake like this should EVER happen.
Baxter International Inc. in Austria unintentionally contaminated samples with the bird flu virus that were used in laboratories in three neighboring countries, raising concern about the potential spread of the deadly disease.
The contamination was discovered when ferrets at a laboratory in the Czech Republic died after being inoculated with vaccine made from the samples early this month. The material came from Deerfield, Illinois-based Baxter, which reported the incident to the Austrian Ministry of Health, Sigrid Rosenberger, a ministry spokeswoman, said today in a telephone interview.
“This was infected with a bird flu virus,” Rosenberger said. “There were some people from the company who handled it.”
