EVIDENCE ON THE ABU GHURAYB BW FACILITY

(ALLEGED INFANT FORMULA PLANT)



1. THE ABU GHURAYB INFANT FORMULA FACILITY

A SUSPECT BW FACILITY          WE BELIEVE TO

BE A BACKUP BW PRODUCTION FACILITY.







ABU GHURAYB HAS THE

FOLLOWING CHARACTERISTICS WHICH SUPPORT OUR ASSESSMENT OF A

BW ROLE:







THE EQUIPMENT IN THE PLANT REPORTEDLY INCLUDES

EQUIPMENT COMMONLY USED FOR GROWING MICROORGANISMS,

NOT FOR PRODUCING INFANT FORMULA.







THIS COST

IS PROHIBITIVELY HIGH FOR PRODUCING INFANT FORMULA

IN THE THIRD WORLD. WE BELIEVE THE FACILITY WAS

NEVER USED TO PRODUCE INFANT FORMULA.
