Dear MaryAnn,

Whatever the source might be, the tech. will never belive it might be an
artefact caused by testing or sampling procedures, and production will
always belive that it came from sampling or testing.
Both standpoints might be true, but with no evidence in any direction
there is no possibility to rule out anything. You should try to find the
contamination source, which might prove to be very difficult if it was only
a temporary condition. However in parallel you should act, as if it were a
contmination of the sample - take the possible meassures to reduce any
possible bioburden.

Kind regards
Winfried Rapatz
