GALVESTON, Texas - A vial full of what could be a deadly virus is missing in Texas.
It disappeared from a lab at the University of Texas. The vial contains a virus that can cause hemorrhagic fever and could be used in a terror attack.
The university believes the vial was thrown out and poses no risk. Still it's raising questions about the safety and security at our nation's lab.
"In my mind, this is not a crisis but it is a wakeup call. It's a call for greater action and coordinated action" said Professor David Relman of Stanford University.
Government investigators want more oversight suggesting there should be a federal agency responsible for the labs.
