Governor Patrick is promising big changes in the wake of a deadly meningitis outbreak linked to a Framingham pharmacy the day after an I-Team investigation found violations at the New England Compounding Center dating back to 1999.
Hundreds of documents released by the state show a history of problems at the New England Compounding Center, many warning signs, and very few inspections.
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.
The number of people sickened by a deadly meningitis outbreak has now reached 119 cases, including 11 deaths.
As many as 13,000 people received tainted epidural steroid injections manufactured at a Framingham compounding pharmacy according to the Centers for Disease Control.
A fifth person has died in a growing outbreak of a rare form of meningitis that has sickened about three dozen people in several states.
