From the Orlando Sentinel:
FDA examines illicit flu shots
The head of the Food and Drug Administration said Thursday that he expects his agency to learn within days how a shipment of unlicensed Canadian flu vaccines reached Central Florida.

Acting FDA Commissioner Lester Crawford also hinted that Canadian vaccines might gain U.S. approval and be used to help offset the national shortage of flu shots. A Winter Park pharmacy received some of the doses.
