Merck plant where COVID-19 vaccines will be manufactured a “biohazard nightmare,” production floor smeared with feces
By Ethan Huff // Dec 13, 2020

Arie Menachem, a former U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) quality control expert who used to inspect vaccine manufacturing plants, is blowing the whistle about the serious safety violations he says he observed at Merck & Co.'s jab production facilities.


After being ignored by higher-ups at the FDA, Menachem went public to the media, telling Vanity Fair that the public would be shocked to see the horrifically filthy conditions that exist on the production floors where Merck's vaccines are assembled.

Because Big Pharma has already begun to manufacture and distribute Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines at warp speed, the following revelations are critically important for people to know as they consider whether or not to get vaccinated.

According to Menachem, the FDA refuses to take the problem of gross safety violations at vaccine manufacturing plants seriously. The federal agency is more concerned with prioritizing pharmaceutical industry profits than it is with keeping the public safe from potentially tainted vaccines.

Menachem was part of an "elite" group along with 13 others known as "Team Biologics" that was in charge of inspecting some 280 different vaccine and blood products manufacturing plants. What he observed throughout his tenure is nothing short of shocking.

In Nov. 2018, Menachem filed a whistleblower complaint with the U.S. Office of Special Counsel after filing an initial report about the disturbing safety violations he witnessed at a Merck vaccine plant. This initial report was rejected and tossed aside by the FDA.

"The allegations described a biohazard nightmare," Vanity Fair reports, citing Menachem's claims. "Workers appeared to be defecating and urinating in their uniforms, and feces had been found smeared on the floor of the plant's production area, the letter alleged."

"In a sterile manufacturing plant, bathroom breaks can be difficult to take because they require additional time, which could serve as one possible explanation for the events inside the Merck plant," the report adds. "Ungowning can take 15 minutes, regowning can take 15 minutes, and on a night shift, there may be no one else to cover an essential worker during that time."

Eli Lilly also has filthy manufacturing plants

Children's Health Defense (CHD) has also reported that Eli Lilly, another pharmaceutical giant, has had run-ins with the FDA over the years due to quality control problems at its manufacturing plants.

One facility where antibody therapies are developed was found to have "serious quality control problems" that were significant enough to have an "impact on the public health." A former associate counsel at the FDA concluded that "something needs to be fixed."

As for the COVID-19 vaccines that are being produced in many of these same facilities, Dr. Joshua Sharfstein, vice dean for public health practice and community engagement at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, warns that "there is not a lot of room for error on a COVID vaccine."

This is ominous in light of the fact that the FDA is expected to grant emergency use authorization for COVID-19 vaccines, allowing them to start rolling down the assembly line at warp speed.

It is unclear, at this point, whether the FDA will even require full inspections of manufacturing plants as a condition of this approval, seeing as how transparency has been "notably absent in Operation Warp Speed," reports Vanity Fair.

"Absolutely disgusting!" wrote one commenter at CHD. "All of these manufacturers need to be taken to court for crimes against humanity."

"This ancient hippy is putting on the right wings to tell you there is no such thing as an antivaxxer, only those who want safe medical practice," wrote another.
