Spotlight on Plum Island

Spotlight on Plum Island

First hour guest, Michael Carroll discussed his book Lab 257(1) about the secretive germ research being conducted at a government lab on Plum Island, New York. He noted that Lyme Disease, West Nile and a type of Avian flu all first appeared in the U.S. within miles of the lab, and he suspects that they may have been accidentally released from there. The facility is also a "soft target" for terrorists, and has had security problems with stolen laptops and vehicles, he added.
The Plum Island Animal Disease Center(2), is an in-house research facility of the USDA, which according to their website, seeks to protect America from "foreign animal disease agents accidentally or deliberately introduced into the U.S." Since 2003, the safety of the facility has been managed by the Dept. of Homeland Security.
