Exclamation Testing - Should A samples be made public right away?

When fighters undergo additional drug testing, such as that done by USADA or WADA, should they disclose a failed A sample right away even if it is potentially due to something like food contamination?

It just seems that in genuine cases of contamination, an otherwise clean fighter who has been unlucky (ie not a deliberate cheat) will have hs reputation pulled through the mud and will be permanently perceived as a cheat unfairly eventhough they haven't actually tried to cheat. Obviously, if the B test confirms that there is a deliberate attempt to cheat then it should definately be disclosed.


Obviously the Morales situation is what made me think of this but I'm talking generally here and I'm still waiting to see what really is up with Erik's test before I decide what I think about it.

What do you guys think?

yes, by the time the second sample comes out, the fight could have already taken place

The reason they split the samples in the first place is to avoid false positives. Obviously the answer is no, and it's written into their own protocol.

it would **** shit up. A sample has trace amounts of something (yes, contamination is a thing) and the B sample is clean.
If someone tests positive for something it should first be investigated.
