KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) Federal regulators have cited the University of Kansas Medical Center for violations in its animal research facilities, one that led to the death of a goat.
After an inspection in January, the U.S. Department of Agriculture cited the medical center for inadequate veterinary care, improper reporting and improper supervision of experimentation.
A medical center spokeswoman says medical center lost an appeal of the citation for the goat’s death but the USDA has not indicated it will conduct further investigations.
The USDA says some citations are corrected quickly and do not prompt further investigations.
The Kansas City Star reports that the agriculture department is conducting another inspection of possible failure to provide adequate veterinary care and adequate laboratory oversight.
The medical center says that investigation involves four relatively minor issues.
