Infection from open wounds was a problem for U.S. military casualties during World War II, often resulting in amputation or death. In 1941 the U.S. government charged the pharmaceutical industry with finding a way to mass produce penicillin, which was the most potent antibiotic at the time. Three years later, scientists at the Northern Regional Research Laboratory (NRRL) developed a method of growing large amounts of penicillin via a process called deep-tank fermentation.
