Meningitis Attorney issues first infographic on the epic meningitis outbreak to help victims recognize fungal meningitis signs and symptoms
As a meningitis attorney who has seen a fair amount of epic outbreaks, so far nothing has matched the most recent meningitis outbreak caused by The New England Compounding Center in Framingham, MA.
With over 600 victims and over 40 deaths, this meningitis outbreak has reached historic proportions.
And with management at The New England Compounding Center claiming that it was the cleaning company that is to blame for the outbreak, the finger pointing has only just begun.
The Meningitis Outbreak: Who’s Really Responsible?
The owner of NECC Barry Cadden was subpoenaed by The House of Representatives at a hearing in Washington, D.C. on Nov. 14, but Cadden declined to testify by evoking his Fifth Amendment rights. The NECC declared bankruptcy soon after.
Members of Congress feel the FDA could have prevented the meningitis outbreak due to its lax oversight on compounding pharmacies in general. This oversight is left to the state pharmacy boards to monitor and in most cases, they do very little to protect the rights of citizens.
But according to officials, the FDA something was amiss at NECC. In 2006, the FDA issued a warning letter to the compounding pharmacy, accusing it jeopardizing the sterility of their drugs due to faulty packaging.
The FDA knew what was going on, but failed to act.
