Sloppy anthrax handling exposes lab workers

"Seven Oakland researchers developing a vaccine for anthrax are being treated for exposure to the deadly microbe after a laboratory mistakenly shipped live bacteria, officials said Thursday. Employees at Children's Hospital Oakland Research Institute had believed they were working with dead bacteria until 49 mice injected with the bacteria died and tests showed the sample was live... 'How this happened is just beyond me,' said Dr. Bertram Lubin, the institute's president and director of research. 'I'm stunned. The lead investigator is stunned.'"
