Health Canada announced Friday that Sanofi Pasteur was recalling roughly 4,700 vials or 47,000 doses of the so-called BCG vaccine. Another 1,000 vials produced as part of the affected lots had not been distributed by the company, according to The Star. Dr. Paul Gully said the building in which the vaccine is made was flooded last October, and there remain ongoing production challenges related to the flood and the sole supplier of tuberculosis vaccine in Canada has recalled all doses because of concerns the product may have been contaminated. The concerns came to light following routine inspections of the company s Toronto manufacturing facility in May and early June, a senior Health Canada official said in an interview.
