F.D.A. Tells J.&J. to Throw Out 60 Million Doses Made at Troubled Plant [View all]

The Food and Drug Administration plans to allow about 10 million doses to be distributed in the United States or sent to other countries, but with a warning that regulators cannot guarantee that Emergent BioSolutions, the company that operates the plant, followed good manufacturing practices.
