Manufacturing problems were found at Ameridose, a Massachusetts company that makes injectable drugs
WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal health inspectors found more than a dozen manufacturing problems, including leaky ceilings and insects, at a drugmaking facility with the same founders as the specialty pharmacy linked to a deadly meningitis outbreak.
The Food and Drug Administration on Monday released the results of a month-long inspection of Ameridose, a Westborough, Mass.-based company that makes injectable drugs.
Inspectors said they found insects within 10 feet of a supposedly sterile area where drugs were manufactured. In another case, inspectors reported a bird flying into a room where drugs are stored.
