A drug company with the same founders as a compounding pharmacy linked to a meningitis outbreak has agreed to remain closed until at least Feb. 22.
Federal health inspectors found more than a dozen manufacturing problems, including leaky ceilings and insects, at Ameridose.
One by one, about a dozen people showed up to the Ameridose facility in Westborough on Friday, only to be turned away the door.
A company spokesman says the notice affects 650 employees at Ameridose and 140 employees at its marketing and support arm.
A company with the same founders as a specialty pharmacy tied to a deadly meningitis outbreak has agreed to extend its voluntary closure until Nov. 19.
Gov. Deval Patrick says the specialty pharmacy linked to a deadly meningitis outbreak may have misled regulators and done work beyond the scope of its state license.
