Pharmacy Linked To Outbreak Issues Recall

Posted: Updated:

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (AP) - A Massachusetts pharmacy linked to a deadly meningitis outbreak recalls all of its products.

The New England Compounding Center distributed a steroid connected to a fungal meningitis outbreak.

Ninety-one people have been infected in nine states, and at least seven people have died from the rare illness.

The center issued a news release calling the voluntary recall a "precautionary measure," saying there are no indication any other products was contaminated.

The steroids were injected into people suffering from back pain from July through September.
