You may have heard of a recent outbreak of meningitis in the news. The source of the disease oubreak came from the New England Compounding Pharmacy. It affected patients who had steroid injections in the spine with a pre-mixed medication delivered already in the syringe.

The Virginia Department of Health has contacted all patients who could be potentially affected by the tainted medication.

Medications identified by the recall from the New England Compounding Pharmacy were not utilized in OrthoVirginia owned facilities.
