Framingham pharmacy is suspected in meningitis deaths

State and federal health officials have identified a Framingham pharmacy as the source of injectable steroids that may have infected more than 25 people, four fatally, with a rare form of fungal meningitis.

The pharmacy, New England Compounding Center, which has been warned about production problems in the past by federal regulators, voluntarily recalled three lots of Methylprednisolone Acetate on Sept. 26, according to the US Food and Drug Administration.
