The New York Times (6/4, A13, Cooper, Subscription Publication) notes that this was “the third time that the Pentagon had increased its estimate of the number of anthrax samples that it said were inadvertently sent out.” The anthrax shipment incident adds to the “spate of recently documented mistakes in federal laboratories involving anthrax, flu and smallpox” that “have raised fears about how carefully the government and laboratories handle dangerous pathogens.”
