We previously mentioned that a fungal meningitis outbreak has happened because of drugs from a contaminated pharmacy.
So far, 15 people are dead and at least 200 others are sick.
The FDA is widening its search for the cause of all the meningitis, believing other drugs might be causing the problems.

Ugh, we knew it was going to get worse — and maybe it's our fault for wondering out loud just how bad it was going to get.
The meningitis outbreak caused by a fungus-tainted steroid injection has risen to 205 cases in 14 states.

This is just awful — 14 deaths have resulted from 185 cases of meningitis caused by a spinal steroid issued by the New England Compounding Center.
Because of that, there is a new class-action lawsuit being mounted and filed against the company for the "fungus contaminated steroid."
