Updates on the Mounting Toll from Contaminated Drugs "Compounded" by Mass. Pharmacy

The death and disability toll from the contaminated spinal pain relief drugs "compounded" by a New England pharmacy continues to mount. Patients have come down with serious infections in Maryland, Virginia and eight other states, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Check this CDC web page for updates and good advice on what patients should do if they feel any unusual symptoms after a spinal injection.

Patients who are looking into possible legal action against the pharmacy should make sure that the clinic where they got the injection keeps all records of who sold drugs to the clinic.
