vCJD found in frequent donor in France

Now that vCJD has been found in a frequent blood donor in France, it will be interesting to see if French officials follow the lead of the UK who notified 1000s of donors in September that they may be at increased risk of carrying vCJD. The donor's blood was transfused to 10 recipients but was also used to make unspecified "medicines" - enough for several 1000 people.
