Bacterial archive destroyed

An archive of infectious bacteria, held at the Pittsburgh Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Pennsylvania, has apparently been destroyed, according to Nature. It looks like this might have happened a little while ago.

There is a piece in Clinical Infectious Diseases, referred to in Nature, which is here: It includes a petition signed by 240 or so people, asking for an enquiry into how this happened.
