Demand an Investigation of Baxter Corporation and its Vaccines!

According to multiple published reports, Baxter Corporation earlier this year shipped vaccines contaminated with virulent H5N1 bird flu. Yet, in spite of this "accident," Baxter Corporation is currently producing H1N1 "swine flu" vaccines for fall or winter release (See: Swine flu shots to boost Baxter:,0,3826525.story ). Don't we deserve a thorough investigation as to how live bird flu materials, kept in high-level bio-security facilities, ended up in vaccines intended for human use?

The Times of India (March 6, 2009):
Virus mix-up by lab could have resulted in pandemic:
It's emerged that virulent H5N1 bird flu was sent out by accident from an Austrian lab last year and given to ferrets in the Czech Republic before anyone realised. As well as the risk of it escaping into the wild, the H5N1 got mixed with a human strain, which might have spawned a hybrid that could unleash a pandemic.
