According to ABC, Food and Drug Administration found out that the British flu vaccine plant manufacturing was contaminated, in 2003, but failed to re-examine it. Countering the accusation of wrongdoing was acting FDA commissioner Lester Crawford, saying that the contaminations were unrelated.
FDA inspectors who visited the Chiron Corp. plant in Liverpool in June 2003 found records of bacteria concentrations a thousand times higher than expected, said a report distributed by Democrats at a hearing of the House Government Reform Committee.

The preliminary inspection report from last month indicates in three places that deficiencies found in 2003 had not been corrected.

Smells like a rat to me.

Related or unrelated, FDA must have further pursued the contamination. If it had done it, we wouldn't have the loss of supply of half of the flu vaccine in October of 2004.
