Closure of Ameridose, sister company of pharmacy in meningitis outbreak, extended 2 weeks

A Westborough pharmacy and drug manufacturer with the same owners as the Framingham specialty pharmacy at the center of the ­national fungal meningitis outbreak will remain closed until at least Nov. 19.

The temporary closure of Ameridose LLC, by mutual agreement with state regulators, was extended two weeks Friday to give investigators more time to complete an inspec­tion of the facility, after the company recalled its products this week.
