Congress Rips The CDC For Lax Safety Procedures That Led To Anthrax Exposure Confirming This Site's Previous Claims (Video)

July 16. 2014

Members of the U.S. Congress took turns ripping the Center For Disease Control (CDC) over their lax safety procedures, which lead to 84 employees, including scientists, being exposed to deadly anthrax. No fatalities have been reported, as employees were given medication to address the exposure.

Today, U.S. News And World Report stated, "A document released by the government on Monday after a follow-up investigation revealed that CDC laboratories violated crucial safety codes: keys were left in the locks of refrigerators containing anthrax, bacteria was being transported in Ziploc bags and workers were using expired disinfectants, according to Reuters."

The Judiciary Report has been writing about lab safety for years (84 Members Of Staff At The Center For Disease Control Exposed To Anthrax Confirming This Site's Previous Claims About Lab Safety). Though the government, including the CDC, reads this website on a regular basis according to site stats, apparently they didn't take it to heart enough, as revelations about poor procedures and protocols at their main facility is a matter of concern. Considering they have the capability to accidentally wipeout the entire nation if something goes seriously wrong at their facility, they are going to have to do better than this.

Rep. Tim Murphy, R-Pa., chairman of a subcommittee of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, called the anthrax incident “sloppy” and “inexcusable,” reported USA Today. In June, more than 80 CDC employees were potentially exposed to live anthrax bacteria when it was transferred to an ill-equipped lab. A document released by the government on Monday after a follow-up investigation revealed that CDC laboratories violated crucial safety codes: keys were left in the locks of refrigerators containing anthrax, bacteria was being transported in Ziploc bags and workers were using expired disinfectants, according to Reuters...
