Rhode Island became the 19th state to report that the outbreak has affected someone.

Massachusetts health officials are moving to revoke the license of the New England Compounding Center who's contaminated medications started this whole outbreak.

We think something fundamental needs to change in the compounding pharmacy industry so that something like this never happens again.

Check out the video (above) to hear how the FDA is responding to this crisis.
