Exclamation Bubonic plaque.....

Wasn't sure where to really put this so I just figured I can place it here and someone can move it... It seems as though the US government is once again failing in their attempts to run their agencies safely...

Mice Carrying Plague Vanish From Lab
Thursday, September 15, 2005

NEWARK, N.J. Three mice infected with the bacteria responsible for bubonic plague (search) apparently disappeared from a laboratory about two weeks ago, and authorities launched a search though health experts said there was scant public risk.

The mice were unaccounted-for at the Public Health Research Institute (search), which is on the campus of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and conducts bioterrorism research for the federal government.

Federal official said the mice may never be accounted for. Among other things, the rodents may have been stolen, eaten by other lab animals or just misplaced in a paperwork error.

If the mice got outside the lab, they would have already died from the disease, state Health Commissioner Fred Jacobs said.

The possibility of theft prompted the institute to interrogate two dozen of its employees and conduct lie detector tests, The Star-Ledger of Newark reported Thursday.

The FBI said it was investigating. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (search) is also investigating, the newspaper reported.

University officials did not immediately return a call seeking comment Thursday morning.
