New England Compounding
Massachusetts has taken action against three more compounding pharmacies following unannounced inspections that were ordered in the wake of a deadly fungal meningitis outbreak linked to a Framingham pharmacy.
Massachusetts Health and Human Services Secretary JudyAnn Bigby says state overseers and the managers of a compounding pharmacy bear responsibility for a fatal, nationwide outbreak of fungal meningitis.
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.
