CDC bioterror labs cited for security flaws in audits
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) manages laboratories which conduct research on some of the most deadly pathogens, such as anthrax and the plague, but investigations conducted by the Inspector General (IG) (of the Department of Health and Human Services) found security concerns in reports from 2008, 2009, and 2010.
USA Today used the Freedom of Information Act to obtain the HHS IG’s reports; USA Today noted that “the CDC refuses to release copies of its lab inspection reports.”
