Settlement Reached With Pharmacy Responsible for Meningitis Outbreak
You likely remember the meningitis outbreak that occurred last year that was linked to contaminated steroid pain shots. That outbreak killed at least 64 people, and 751 people were sickened in 20 states. The Massachusetts-based pharmacy at the center of that catastrophe is now bankrupt and out of business, but its owners and insurers are likely set to pay $100 million in a settlement with victims and their families that were affected by the outbreak.
