All of these were epidural / spinal injections were they not? Please confirm, as I had an injection of steroids for back pain (non-epidural) on Monday. Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1443074
Q: How were people infected?
A: The prime suspect is the steroid shots. Federal officials said that a fungus was found inside one sealed vial of the steroid and other vials also appeared to be contaminated.
Q: Where did the steroid come from?
A: A specialty pharmacy, New England Compounding Center in Framingham, Mass., custom-made the steroid. The company has recalled nearly 17,700 vials. Shipments went to 75 clinics and other facilities in 23 states, but it isn't known how many vials may have been used. U.S. health officials urged doctors not to use any products from the company, which has shut down production.
I'd call if you have a question because everything I've read says it can take up to a month for full on illness to occur.
