The experimental results cannot be reproduced.


The ability to follow a specific set of procedures and achieve the same results is one of the key parts of the scientific method.  If the results cannot be replicated, the study is invalid.  Unfortunately, results of invalid studies are sometimes announced to the public before replication attempts can be made to invalidate the study.  Trying to reverse public belief at that point can be impossible.
