FDA recommends Zika testing for all blood donated in U.S.
By Julie Steenhuysen and Letitia Stein CHICAGO/TAMPA, Fla. (Reuters) - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recommended on Friday that all blood donated in the United States and its territories be tested for Zika virus, as it moves to prevent transmission of the virus through the blood supply. The agency said its decision to expand blood screening in the United States was based on concerns about more cases of local transmission in Florida, the growing number of travel-related infections and concerns that Zika-tainted blood could unwittingly be given to a pregnant woman, putting her unborn baby at risk of severe birth defects. ?The transfusion of a pregnant woman with blood infected with the Zika virus could have terrible consequences,? Peter Marks, director of the FDA?s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, said during a conference call with reporters.
