Would you want a swine flu vaccine created by Baxter ?

The UK government are sourcing Swine Flu vaccine from two companies. One is UK company GSK (Glaxo Smithkline), whilst the other is a US firm called Baxter.

Would it give you confidence to know that Baxter sent out a batch of seasonal flu vaccines last year to Europe that were actually contaminated with the live version of the H5N1 Bird flu and this was only detected by authorities in the Czech Republic, not by Baxter themselves !

And to think the UK government are trusting this company to produce a vaccine to save lives.
