The Orstrahyun Reports, The Health Department Acts

The Ostrahyun, Sunday April 26 :
...the Australian government stockpiles of Tamiflu are believed to have reached their expiration dates late last year.
The Sunday Telegraph, May 3 :
Responding to questions from The Sunday Telegraph, a spokesman for Health Minister Nicola Roxon revealed 1.6 million packs (of Tamiflu) were removed from the Commonwealth's stockpile this month because they had passed their use-by date.
The difference here is that the Sunday Telegraph gets calls or e-mails back from the Health Department when contacted for comment about expired anti-virals stockpiles.

Thanks to Viro for that one week earlier news tip.
