As per the trusted reports, the Federal regulators have been trying to influence Johnson & Johnson to scrap out about 60 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, which has been produced at a troubled Plant in Baltimore. Emergent BioSolutions run the Plant operations.
The enforcement has been due to the possible contamination of the doses of vaccines during their manufacturing processes.Since April, the Baltimore Plant has been shut after an inspection revealed violation of several rules and vaccine contamination. The main ingredient from AstraZeneca’s vaccine dose is reportedly the contaminant. Around 170 million doses of the vaccines were at risk after inspecting the Plant, as reported by the Times.
The agency further added that the FDA has stated that several other batches are not fully suitable for its use on the people. Still, the additional batches have been under review, and the agency will inform the public as those reviews are completed. Currently, the US has more than the required doses of the other two vaccines that companies like Pfizer and Moderna have approved.
