Framingham pharmacy recalls all its drugs
Mass. pharmacy acts as cases of meningitis climb
The number of meningitis cases linked to a Framingham pharmacy nearly doubled over the weekend, as the company issued a voluntary nationwide recall of every product it makes, some 1,200 drugs and medical products. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Sunday that the nationwide outbreak of a rare, severe form of fungal meningitis believed caused by tainted steroid injections for back pain has sickened 91 people across nine states. Seven of the afflicted people have died.
