FDA investigating ruined 15 million Covid Vaccines in Baltimore

188

The U.S. The Food and Drug Administration is investigating the ruining of more than 15 million Johnson & Johnson Covid vaccines at a Baltimore production facility.

“Employees at Emergent BioSolutions, a production facility in Baltimore, and a manufacturing partner to Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca, reportedly mixed-up two vaccine dosages and shipments were put on hold,” reports Fox News.

Johnson & Johnson planned to ship 100 million doses of the vaccine to the US by the end of May to meet Biden's anti-covid plan, officials said.

Previously, in order to meet the supply plan, J&J shipped reserve batches of drugs from the Netherlands. Now, due to the incident, supplies of all vaccines in Baltimore have been suspended pending an investigation.

According to Fox News, the company said quality control identified one batch of drug substance that did not meet quality standards at Emergent Biosolutions, and that batch was never advanced to the filling and finishing stages of its manufacturing process.
