looks like they are going after compounding pharmacies with this one.
 Quoting: Agent Tray


Compounding pharmacies have sprung up because of the unavailability of common injectible medications. Why these medications have become unavailable is a big unanswered question.
In his book, "Between Two Ages," Brzezinski wrote: "The technetronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values."

Apparently it takes some time to kill you.At least a month.Imagine how many of their products could be tainted and given to patients before anyone was aware there was a problem.
I am guessing more medications from this company will cause illness soon.Almost had to be a well thought out plan.

Meningitis outbreak's first victim likely was Kentucky judge

The probable first victim of the fungal meningitis outbreak in Tennessee was Kentucky Circuit Court Judge Eddie C. Lovelace, who died at Vanderbilt University Medical Center on Sept. 17. He was 78.

In July and August, Lovelace received three rounds of the pain-relieving steroid injections suspected of causing the outbreak of the rare disease, Joyce Lovelace, his wife of 55 years, said.

"New England Compounding Center: Avoid Drugs From Company Tied To Meningitis, FDA Says "
...

"In an alarming indication the outbreak could get a lot bigger, Massachusetts health officials said the pharmacy involved, the New England Compounding Center of Framingham, Mass., has recalled three lots consisting of a total of 17,676 single-dose vials of the steroid, preservative-free methylprednisolone acetate."

RICHMOND

Public health officials in Virginia say the number of suspected cases of a rare and potentially deadly outbreak of meningitis has increased to five. The state has recorded one death linked to a fungal meningitis outbreak.

State epidemiologist David Trump also said Friday the number of patients who received steroid shots for back pain contaminated with a fungus has risen to at least 630. That's up more than 100 from Thursday's count.

OP... What do you think? The fungus is in there accidentally or intentionally?

I think it's an awfully strange coincidence myself. I'm leaning toward intentional but by whom and for what cause I'd decline to speculate.

Check your state's exemption laws. Almost all states have them, and in most states they are poorly publicized but easy to utilize. It took me less than five minutes of courteous conversation about my religious beliefs to get my kids exempted, officially, from vaccinations in Florida until they are 18. Check your state laws, or is well worth the effort to protect your children. I learned the hard way, but at least I can protect my child from further vaccine injury.

And if anyone wants to shill, my oldest child was severely injured by his first and last vaccine with mercury. Apparently once a child is four, they don't qualify for mercury free pediatric vaccines.

Thousands of patients who got steroid injections in 23 US states may be at risk of acquiring the rare fungal infection meningitis, which has left five people dead in the latest outbreak.

The fungus has so far sickened 35 Americans who took steroid shots for back pain across six US states. The spinal injections contained a sealed vial of the steroid methylprednisolone acetate, which the US Food and Drug Administration found contains the fungus.

North Carolina: 1 case
Tennessee:29 cases, including 3 deaths
Virginia: 6 cases, including 1 death

However, they say they recalled "recalled three lots consisting of a total of 17,676 single-dose vials of the steroid", so who knows how many were given to people.

Up to 1,000 Minnesota patients linked to meningitis outbreak; no reports in Coulee Region

ST. PAUL, Minn. — The Minnesota Department of Health estimates that as many as 1,000 patients may have received contaminated steroids that have been implicated in a national meningitis outbreak, but no patients in the Coulee Region have been exposed.

Two Twin Cities-based health care groups used steroids from the same product lots that have been linked to the deaths of five patients and 30 illnesses in six states.

So far Minnesota has not identified any cases of fungal meningitis related to the outbreak.

Officials at Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center and Mayo Clinic Health System in La Crosse and Winona Health in Winona checked their pharmaceutical supplies and determined they never had that brand of steroid in their facilities, spokesmen said.

Officials with Medical Advanced Pain Specialists and the Minnesota Surgery Center are scrambling to contact all of their patients who received the potentially contaminated steroid injections. Medical Advanced Pain Specialists has locations in E.. [link to lacrossetribune.com]

No fungal meningitis cases in Minnesota, but 25 steroid patients evaluated

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- About 25 Minnesotans who were injected with a steroid from a Massachusetts specialty pharmacy are being evaluated for fungal meningitis in an outbreak that has killed five and sickened 30 in six states, Minnesota's top disease investigator said Friday.

State epidemiologist Ruth Lynfield said the number of those being evaluated is likely to fluctuate as health officials and a group of Minnesota pain clinics track down about 700 patients who received spinal injections of the steroid that's linked to the outbreak.

Lynfield said it's difficult to know how many could be affected because the form of meningitis is rare and the outbreak is still developing.

"We're having a very low threshold to have people evaluated," Lynfield said.

Two Minnesota clinic chains used the now-recalled product -- Medical Advanced Pain Specialists in Edina, Fridley, Shakopee and Maple Grove; and the Minnesota Surgery Center in Edina and Maple Grove.

"There's a massive effort to contact all the patients," said Marsha Thiel, the chief executive officer of MAPS, which owns the Minnesota Surgery Center c

There are at least 2 USP (United States Pharmacopea) regulations governing sterility testing and the implementation and maintenance of routine monitoring for compounding pharmacies. And there are several independent labs in the US that are able to do the testing and can provide consulting to CPs.

Of course, it costs money to follow those Regs ... maybe some CPs would rather bet on more profit and nothing bad happening versus taking proper precautions and less profit.
