Clarification: Merial's Pirbright Vaccines Center

Our report on Merial restarting bluetongue vaccine production misreported events that took place at Merial's Pirbright Vaccines Centrein the UK last November (Animal Pharm No 632, p 1). Animal Pharm acknowledges that, following a technical problem with a valve, the site's biosecurity defences functioned exactly as designed. The virus was discharged into the contained drainage system, but not into the environment as stated. Animal Pharm is happy to set the record straight, and apologises for any confusion and embarrassment this mistake may have caused.
