105. The post wasn't about Swine Flu
It was about Avian Flu. What it says is that, back in February, the Baxter lab in Austria sent a sample of live avian flu to other labs, in a mixture with live H3N2 flu, when it should have been killed before it was sent out (and, possibly, shouldn't have been mixed that early - the mixing should only occur when the inactive versions of H5N1 and H3N2 are finally put together to form the shot given to people). And so that sample killed one or more test animals.

Maybe it's the incorrect belief that this is about swine flu that has got this moved to the Sept 11 forum.
