FDA inspection found problems at factory making J&J vaccine

(AP) — U.S. regulators say the Baltimore factory contracted to make Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine was dirty, didn’t follow proper manufacturing procedures and had poorly trained staff.

The problems resulted in contamination of a batch of material that was going to be put in the shots.

The Food and Drug Administration on Wednesday released a 13-page report detailing findings from its recent inspection of the now-idle Emergent Biosciences factory.

J&J and Emergent say they’re working to fix the problems. Nothing made at the factory for J&J has been distributed yet.
