Middle Georgia Facilities & Tainted Steroid Medications

In FDA REcalls on October 19, 2012 at 5:02 pm

The Food and Drug Administration is asking public health officials to contact 10 Middle Georgia health facilities to recall drugs that came from a Massachusetts company that produced contaminated steroids. But, several of those facilities say they should not be on the list.

Jennifer Jones with the North Central Health District says the FDA told the public health department to contact 10 Middle Georgia health facilities because they received products from the New England Compounding Company.
“What they received were other drugs that were compounded in the same pharmacy as the first drug that was mentioned in the news that’s associated with fungal meningitis,” Jones said.
Jones says the Middle Georgia facilities that received NECC products that were recalled are: Associates Surgery Center, Coliseum Same Day Surgery Center, Eye Center of Central Georgia, Forsyth Street Ambulatory Surgical Center, GA Neurosurgical Outpatient Surgery Center, Piedmont Surgery Center, Renaissance Plastic Surgery-GA, Spa Medical, Washington County Regional Medical Center, and Houston County Medical Center.
Jones says the FDA is expanding the recall “out of an abundance of caution” and says the recall is not linked with any illnesses. But at least half of the health facilities that made the list say they shouldn’t be there.
