The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ordered Johnson & Johnson to discard 60 million COVID-10 vaccine doses on Friday.

The shots were made at a plant in Baltimore that had several violations and ruined 15 million doses of the vaccine during an ingredient mix-up.

Earlier in the day, the health agency allowed 10 million doses to be distributed in the U.S. to other countries, but with a caveat that there is no guarantee the J&J shots wee made under good manufacturing practices.

It has not been decided yet whether not the plant, run by Emergent Solutions, will be allowed to reopen after closing two months ago.
