Army lab cited eight years ago for failing to properly kill anthrax samples

The Army bioterror defense research facility that has mistakenly sent live anthrax to dozens of labs in the U.S. and abroad faced potential sanctions in 2007 for failing to properly kill specimens of the deadly bacteria – and ignoring test results that indicated their kill process wasn't effective, USA TODAY has learned.

The lab safety violations identified eight years ago at the Army's Dugway Proving Ground in Utah were so serious that federal regulators referred the facility for further investigation and possible enforcement action, federal lab regulators said in response to questions from USA TODAY. But no fine was ever issued and records show the incident was never disclosed in the annual reports sent to Congress by the program that oversees labs working with potential bioterror pathogens.

  1. North Korea is accusing the United States of targeting it with anthrax and wants the U.N. Security Council to look into they called America's "biological warfare schemes."
    Me, I think the target could be anybody. They want half of the world population
    obliterated minus there own worthless, plague selves. Just place some in a plane
    and spray it like crop dusters and inhale.
