More deadly pathogens, toxins found improperly stored in NIH and FDA labs - The Washington Post

Read the full article: More deadly pathogens, toxins found improperly stored in NIH and FDA labs - The Washington Post:

"Officials at the National Institutes of Health said Friday a search on their sprawling Bethesda campus had turned up five different misplaced biological materials in recent weeks. All of them are considered so dangerous — they are known as “select agents” — that the government requires them to be stored in specially secured facilities. But in these cases, the vials were in regular labs, often part of collections of samples that date back decades.

Simultaneously, the Food and Drug Administration said it had found vials of staphylococcal enterotoxin, a frequent cause of food-borne illness, at a lab within the agency’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition that was not registered to handle it."
