The Food and Drug Administration – the US government body that deals with the regulation of food and pharmaceutical products – has ordered that about 60 million doses of the Janssen coronavirus vaccine, manufactured by Johnson & Johnson, be discarded due to possible contamination.
The vials were produced in the Baltimore plant, in the state of Maryland, where some incidents have been reported in recent months.
Currently, the American body is considering whether to allow the distribution in the US or other countries of at least 10 million doses of these vaccines, accompanied however by a warning.
The notice would explain that the authorities are unable to guarantee that the manufacturing plant has followed good practices. Factory whose reopening, among other things, has not yet been decided after two months of stoppage.
