Bring Out Your Dead! [Vinnie]

Move along, nothing to see here.

TRENTON, N.J. — The frozen remains of two mice injected with the organism that causes plague have not been accounted for seven weeks after being discovered missing at a University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey facility in Newark, the university said Friday.

The FBI investigated and determined there was no risk to public health or any indication of the terrorist link.

It wasn't the first time plague-infected mice have disappeared from the New Jersey facility. Four years ago, in September 2005, three live mice infected with bubonic plague bacteria disappeared from various cages. Officials later said they believed the rodents had died.

I, for one, and comforted by the tight security being employed by this research facility as regards to deadly infectious diseases. And there's nothing more I like to see than that the officials "believed the rodents had died." Especially in New Jersey, a state which, if you missed it, has a rather decent sized Islamist population. And one more nitpick:

Perlin said the institute has begun taking inventory of all logged hazardous waste bags before sterilization following the incident.

Gee, thanks there fellers. Your new attention to detail cloaks me in the warm and fuzzy glow of blissful security.

H/T Davidray.
