Moderna says Takeda plans to recall three lots of suspended COVID-19 vaccine

- Moderna Inc MRNA.O said on Wednesday its Japanese distribution partner, Takeda Pharmaceutical Co Ltd 4502.T, planned to initiate the recall of three lots of its COVID-19 vaccine that were suspended due to contamination.

Japan's health ministry said particles of stainless steel were found in suspended Moderna COVID-19 vaccines, but it did not expect they would pose an additional health risk. nL4N2Q32NV
