Japanese authorities are recalling 3 batches of COVID-19 vaccines after detection of stainless steel contaminants in some vaccine ampoules.
“The most likely cause of contamination is the friction between two pieces of metal in the machine that puts the stoppers on the vials,” Moderna and Takeda Pharmaceuticals said in a joint statement.
It has been confirmed that the material is stainless steel.
While the Japanese Ministry of Health announced, based on information from the investigations of the companies involved, that it “does not believe that stainless steel particles pose any additional health risks.”
Last week, the Japanese authorities stopped the use of batches of the “Moderna” vaccine, which included more than one million and 600,000 doses, after being notified of the issue of contamination.
The case gained increased attention after it was announced that two men had died days after each received a dose of one of the pending payments.
The two companies confirmed in the statement that there is no evidence that the death was caused by the vaccine, while the causes are still being investigated.
