A judge has ordered home confinement for two men facing the most serious charges in a deadly nationwide meningitis outbreak blamed on a defunct Massachusetts compounding pharmacy.
Barry Cadden and Glen Adam Chin, two of 14 NECC employees arrested for their role in a deadly meningitis outbreak, appeared in Federal Court.
Several victims said Wednesday’s arrests are just the next step in a lengthy process after the New England Compounding Center, which allegedly distributed contaminated steroids.
Fourteen people were charged Wednesday for their alleged roles at the Framingham pharmacy blamed for a deadly national meningitis outbreak.
A Framingham pharmacy linked to a deadly national meningitis outbreak put dozens of fake names on prescriptions to defraud the government and avoid regulations, officials said.
Nearly a year after a nationwide meningitis outbreak, a multi-party lawsuit is moving forward suing New England Compounding Center in Framingham with negligence.
The owner and director of the specialty pharmacy tied to a deadly meningitis outbreak declined to testify Wednesday morning before a congressional committee investigating the matter.
The head of the Massachusetts health department says investigators still don’t know why regulators backed off a severe penalty against the New England Compounding Center in 2004.
Nearly a decade ago, federal health inspectors wanted to shut down the Framingham pharmacy linked to a recent deadly meningitis outbreak until it cleaned up its operations, according to congressional investigators.
