The first lawsuits have been filed against New England Compounding Center, the Massachusetts pharmacy that supplied nearly 18,000 vials of contaminated steroid medication to 76 healthcare facilities in 24 states. The CDC estimates that 14,000 patients in 19 states may have received injections from three lots of drugs tainted with fungus. At press time, the CDC reported 377 cases and 28 deaths linked to fungal meningitis following injections of the tainted medication. The outbreak has raised concerns about the pharmaceutical compounding industry as a whole, and congressional investigations have been called for.
