The Animal Welfare Group has sent a letter to the US Department of Transportation requesting that Neuralink be “investigated and fined accordingly for violating the federal Hazardous Goods Transport Act.”

According to a letter obtained by Reuters, Neuralink poses a “serious and ongoing public health risk” due to the misuse of monkey-derived implants. For example, implants can be contaminated with antibiotic-resistant staphylococcus aureus, herpes B virus, and other pathogens. Neuralink employees “packaged and transported apparently unsafely” these contaminated materials.

Neuralink aims to develop a device that can control a computer with human brain power. All tests so far have been done on animals.
