A lab in the UK may have received a sample of live anthrax from the Pentagon in 2007, say US officials.
Colonel Steve Warren said the lab - which is not being named - is run by UK personnel, not the US military.
The colonel was referring to the deadly bacteria when he said, "Another lot came up positive and that lot had sent samples to the UK and Massachusetts."
Now there are 68 labs involved in the anthrax scare from the US, including four foreign countries.
Anthrax bacteria live primarily in inactive spores and are found naturally in the soil, but people can ingest or inhale spores, which can make the anthrax active.
