Federal criminal investigators raid tainted steroid maker NECC

In FDA REcalls on October 17, 2012 at 7:16 pm

Criminal investigators with the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) searched the New England Compounding Center (NECC), which is implicated in the multi-state outbreak of virulent fungal meningitis. Neither agency would comment on what they were looking for; however, two members of Congress have asked the DOJ to investigate whether the compounding center has violated any federal regulations. As the investigation heats up, the 14,000 individuals who received a steroid injection compounded by NECC are extremely concerned that they might contract a deadly fungal meningitis infection.
