No charges have been filed so far against the New England compounding pharmacy at the center of the fungal meningitis outbreak, which killed more than a dozen in Tennessee. A state attorney general and a federal prosecutor say they’re now sharing evidence from their separate investigations.
Health problems linger from a fungal meningitis outbreak that sickened hundreds across the country a year ago. Some people are still receiving treatment. And some who got better relapsed for reasons that aren’t entirely clear.
The New England Compounding Center – blamed for the nationwide outbreak of fungal meningitis – has surrendered its license to operate in Tennessee. At least four other states have already suspended the pharmacy’s license.
