WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The FBI is working with the U.S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to examine government scientists’ possible exposure to anthrax at a lab in Atlanta, but has found no evidence of wrongdoing, a spokesman for the agency said on Thursday.
"We’re aware of it and working with CDC," FBI spokesman Paul Bresson said in an email. "Nothing leads us to believe it’s anything criminal at this point."
The CDC disclosed earlier on Thursday that as many as 75 scientists may have been exposed to live anthrax bacteria and were being offered treatment to prevent infection from the deadly toxin.
