Several healthcare providers in the Wiregrass, including both major hospitals in Dothan, are among those who have received products included in a recall of products received from a Massachusetts medical supplier that may have shipped tainted products. No patients of the local providers are believed to have been contaminated.
Some of the steroids shipped by New England Compounding Center have been linked to a fungus which is believed to have caused meningitis. The Centers for Disease Control claims the death toll has climbed to 20, while nine new cases brought the national total to 254. Nineteen of those are in Alabama where one person has died.
