FBI Investigating The Destruction of 500 Doses Of The Moderna Vaccine

We have been discussing curious Covid-related offenses this year, but a Wisconsin controversy raises a particularly challenging such question.  Advocate Aurora Health has admitted that an employee intentionally removed 57 vials of the Moderna vaccine from refrigeration.  The intentional act, originally claimed to be accidental, resulted in the destruction of 500 doses of the potentially life-saying vaccine. Advocate Aurora Health said the employee was fired. However, an intentional destruction of the doses would seem the ultimate product tampering case: either compromised vaccines would be given patients or 500 people will have to wait longer for the protection from Covid-19.

The FBI is reportedly investigating the incident.  This would seem a serious offense in the midst of a pandemic.

The Justice Department has been investigating fraudulent Covid-19 vaccines or treatments.  This is effective destruction of real vaccine. It is unclear whether it would be investigated as tampering. Section 1365 states:

(a)Whoever, with reckless disregard for the risk that another person will be placed in danger of death or bodily injury and under circumstances manifesting extreme indifference to such risk, tampers with any consumer product that affects interstate or foreign commerce, or the labeling of, or container for, any such product, or attempts to do so, shall—(1) in the case of an attempt, be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; (2) if death of an individual results, be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both; (3) if serious bodily injury to any individual results, be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both; and (4) in any other case, be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both.

(b) Whoever, with intent to cause serious injury to the business of any person, taints any consumer product or renders materially false or misleading the labeling of, or container for, a consumer product, if such consumer product affects interstate or foreign commerce, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

Both section might apply to this circumstance.
This is a case where criminal prosecution would be the only effective deterrent. It is difficult for individuals to sue such defendants (or the hospital) due to the risk of contracting Covid-19 or even those who did contract the virus while waiting.  We have recent negligence cases, including mistakingly giving a Covid treatment rather than the vaccine.  Such errors are easier to address in civil litigation.
One of the issues for the FBI will be whether the individual disclosed the tampering or was willing to have the compromised vaccine administered to patients.  Even with such disclosure, however, there are 500 people who will have to wait longer for a vaccine in the midst of a national pandemic.

      Trump DC Stop the Steal Rally 1/6/2020. I’m not sure about the one on 5th yet, it may be on big time also. DC Commie Mayor not being helpful, be as ready as you…. Water/Food/ Map of the area/ footwear/weather related cloths etc.

      1. Take Paper Maps as local Commie Dims will likely kill your cell phones & cancel all public transportation to hinder Americans movement. Have your lawyers ready to make press releases & sue the DC govt Commie Azzes off.

  2. I could not find a motive given. Was this sabotage? Did they have some objection to the vaccine’s safety, the hospital, or just wanted 500 people not to get a lifesaving vaccine? Were they hidden so that other employees would never have seen them lying out, or were they stored in a deserted part of the facility?

    Very bad.

    This also highlights a serious systemic flaw. How could one person leave out 500 doses, 57 vials, without anyone else noticing? There doesn’t seem to be a duplication of safety or QC checks.

    All I can say is, thank goodness they didn’t leave them out more than 12 hours, and then sneak them back in cold storage later. That would have led to compromised vaccines outside of QC tolerances given to unsuspecting patients. Was no one around this work station in all that time? 12 hours is a heck of a long time.

    Other hospitals out there – learn from this. Whether it’s a mistake or on purpose, don’t allow such vulnerability to a single employee.

    This is why there are badge locks and cameras in pharmaceutical companies. You know how everything was handled, manufactured, and stored and who touched it every step of the way.

    1. George Carlin was wiser than Anthony Fauci:

      “what are you going to do when some super virus comes along that turns your vital organs and the liquid s*****!? I’ll tell you what you’re going to do, you’re going to get sick you’re going to die and you’re going to deserve it because you’re f*******n weak and you got a f*******n weak immune system”

    1. Touché

      Its not like the vaccine will afford anyone coverage past a few months but the damage of fraudulent ballots? The death of reason

    2. Federal versus state crimes.

      The Georgia Bureau of Investigation investigated the election complaints in Georgia, and they didn’t find fraud. State investigatory agencies have likely done the same in other states. Have you tried looking up the investigations, or are you simply assuming that there weren’t any?

        1. “Actually, vote fraud is a federal crime.”
          That’s great news for you Art Deco x4, maybe it means Trump can pardon all of your buddies he told to vote for him multiple times (that actually listened).
          Unfortunately he won’t be able to pardon your favorite alt-right poster children being tried in state court like Chauvin in Minnesota or himself in New York.

      1. Anon: “The Georgia Bureau of Investigation investigated the election complaints in Georgia, and they didn’t find fraud.”

        That is either grossly ignorant or dishonest.

        As of the last reporting from the Secretary of State and the GBI, there were some 250 election complaints filed. The GBI is assisting on 15 of those complaints. The *only* completed investigation being reported is, in fact, only partially completed: a small-sample audit of signatures in one Georgia county.

        If you have evidence that all of the 250 complaints have been investigated and settled, please provide it.

    3. I thought Giuliani said it was hundreds of affidavits. Where did this 52k number come from? He also got Minnesota and Michigan confused as he was claiming too many people voted so I’d take his allegations with high dose of salt. This is the same guy who claimed to
      Have an insurance policy against Trump of double crossed.
