Our only flu plant in Canada is sending out flu shots that are contaminated...something to remember when you are on the fence about taking the flu shot >:(

TORONTO - The company that makes about half of Canada's seasonal flu vaccine order and has the country's pandemic flu vaccine contract has been issued a warning from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration over problems with bacterial contamination in its Quebec manufacturing facility.

Health Canada completed its own previously scheduled inspection of the ID Biomedical plant last Friday and is in the process of writing a report on the Ste. Foy, Que., facility, the department said Tuesday.
"Health Canada is aware of the issues identified by the U.S. FDA and is working closely with both ID Biomedical (GSK) and the U.S. FDA to address these concerns. The U.S. FDA findings, along with Health Canada's own inspection findings, will be assessed to determine if any compliance actions are required," Health Canada said in an emailed response to questions.
The plant was acquired in 2005 by GSK (formerly GlaxoSmithKline). Because it owns the only flu vaccine production facility in Canada, GSK has the country's long-term pandemic flu vaccine contract.
