Multistate Meningitis Outbreak Investigation
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is coordinating a multistate investigation of meningitis among patients who received epidural steroid injections (medication injected into the spine). This form of meningitis is not contagious. Two facilities in Texas received a product that has been implicated in fungal meningitis. This product has been recalled. Please visit the CDC website for more information on the outbreak, including the location of facilities in Texas that received the affected product.
As of Nov. 1, the Texas Department of State Health Services has linked two cases of meningitis to steroid injections produced by the New England Compounding Center. News Release
