Fort Dodge Rabies Vaccine Recall

 Fort Dodge issued a recall of its RabVac 3 TF serial number 873113A rabies vaccine on May 25, 2006 after a vaccinated dog contracted rabies (see The Charlotte Observer article at http://www.charlotte.com/mld/charlotte/business/14786163.htm also see Dogs Adverse Reactions webpage:  http://www.dogsadversereactions.com/RabvacRecall.html).  According to Fort Dodge’s recall letter, this batch of vaccine “was released into the veterinary market in November 2004 and expires June 29, 2006.”  Concerned pet owners or veterinarians can call  Fort Dodge about the recalled vaccine is 800-533-8536.

 Anyone wishing to have a copy of either the 1992 French challenge study data from a research team led by Michel Aubert in which dogs were demonstrated to be immune to a rabies challenge 5 years after vaccination, or Vascellari’s study which documented cancerous tumors in dogs at presumed injection sites of rabies vaccine, please e-mail me.
