MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - State Health Officer Don Williamson says 13 Alabamians were injected with the steroid medicine from a specialty pharmacy linked to a meningitis outbreak.
Six of the Alabamians were injected in Tennessee, he said, and seven in Florida. Alabama did not receive any of the original batch of recalled injections from New England Compounding Center, but Alabamians were exposed because they received treatment in neighboring states that did receive shipments.
The company has recalled its other products as a precaution. Williamson says those products went to Decatur Morgan Hospital Parkway Campus in Decatur, the Alabama Outpatient Surgery Center in Jasper, Pain Physicians in Birmingham, Andalusia Regional Hospital, Birmingham Surgery Center, Brookwood Medical Center in Birmingham, Lanier Health Services in Valley, Medical Center Enterprise, Mobile Surgery Center and Southeast Eye Clinic in Dothan.
