National Drug Injury Law Firm Nadrich & Cohen Warns Americans Who Are Back Pain Victims Of Steroid Injections Causing Meningitis

Nadrich & Cohen is issuing a consumer alert to back pain patients in California and all other states to alert their doctor if they were treated with steroid injections for their back condition since July 2012.

We have reports that the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has confirmed that at least 119 people in 26 states have contracted fungal meningitis due to steroid shots which were manufactured, distributed and sold through the New England Compounding Center of Framingham, Massachusetts. These steroid injections have now  been recalled.

The alert we are sending out is for those who have had steroid injections between July and September 2012.  These individuals should contact their doctor or visit an emergency room as soon as possible.

Thus far, three lots of single dose vials of the steroid injection have been recalled. These are made up of the preservative known as preservative-free methylprednisolone acetate.

Thus far, meningitis cases have been identified in Maryland, Tennessee, Virginia, Florida, North Carolina and Indiana.

Methylprednisolone is used by mostly older patients for lower back pain.

Meningitis is an inflammation of the lining of the brain and spinal cord.
