CDC: 10 more people have fungal infections linked to Framingham pharmacy

Ten more people have fungal meningitis linked to injectable steroids produced at a Framingham pharmacy, bringing the total to 304, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Tuesday. Four others treated with the steroids have peripheral joint infections. No new deaths were reported.

The steroid, methylprednisolone acetate produced at New England Compounding Center, has been blamed to date for 23 deaths in seven states. Federal health officials have said as many as 14,000 people may have been exposed to the tainted drugs between May 21 and Sept. 26, when they were recalled by the company.
