Its April’s Fools Day, but this is no joke: White Coat Waste just exposed that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) wasted $10,000 on dog urine experiments just days after the first COVID-19 death on U.S. soil.

As reported by Fox News and the Washington Free Beacon, the FDA prioritized buying dog urine instead at a time when it should been using those resources to fight COVID-19.

As WCW president and founder Anthony Bellotti told reporters, “Nothing better demonstrates FDA’s badly broken bureaucracy than the fact that just days after the first American on U.S. soil died from COVID-19, it wasted $10,000 on dog urine experiments instead of, say, buying 17,000 respirator masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19.” Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-FL)–a WCW Waste Warrior awardee–remarked:

This wasteful spending at the FDA is precisely why we’ve been urging Congress to keep close watch over the $2 trillion given to the FDA and others under the COVID-19 stimulus bills.

Is this how you want your money spent in the middle of pandemic?
