Federal officials fired 19 employees from three laboratories near Ames for illegally purchasing low-cost medications. Seventeen of the employees worked for the National Veterinary Services Laboratory and the Center for Veterinary Biologics, while two were employed by the Agricultural Research Service.
Officials said the employees used their veterinary credentials to purchase the low-cost medications, although none of the purchased medications were narcotics. An investigation currently is being conducted by the Office of the Inspector General.
