FDA Finds Multiple Problems At Baltimore Plant That Ruined J&J Vaccine Doses

Federal inspectors identified a series of problems at the Baltimore facility where the ingredients for up to 15 million doses of Johnson & Johnson vaccine were ruined, according to a Food and Drug Administration report obtained by NBC News.

The report, known as FDA Form 483, says the plant operated by Emergent BioSolutions “is not maintained in a clean and sanitary condition.” Inspectors found peeling paint and unidentified black and brown residue on the floors and walls, as well as a failure to properly decontaminate waste generated during the manufacture of the vaccine drug substance.

“Such waste is transported through the warehouse before disposal and has the potential to contaminate the warehouse and adjacent areas,” the report says.
