FDA warned LifeSouth about Blood Labeling

From the Montgomery Advertiser

In January, the Food and Drug Administration issued a warning about improperly labeling contaminated blood to a business that was sued earlier this week for allegedly giving a Montgomery hospital contaminated blood that led to a man contracting HIV.
But Kim Kinsell, general counsel for LifeSouth Community Blood Centers, said that the FDA warning concerned an isolated incident at a Huntsville blood center and that there is little chance that facility had any connection to the blood sample in Montgomery.
