CDC, FDA advise not using products made by New England Compounding Center
from American Society of Health-System Pharmacists
With the death toll from a nationwide outbreak of meningitis at five, two federal agencies recommended that all healthcare personnel cease using any product made by New England Compounding Center. Thirty-five people to date have been diagnosed with meningitis after receiving an epidural injection of preservative-free methylprednisolone acetate suspension prepared by the Massachusetts-based compounding pharmacy, Benjamin Park of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said during a recent news conference. Specimens from five of these people were found to contain fungus.
