Steroid Recall News: Mt. Pleasant Facility Intervene MD on the list
Here's information that a Mt. Pleasant SC facility is on the list: Shown as Intervene MD 843-216-4844 in that city.
The fungus found in tainted steroid shots matches the one blamed in the national meningitis outbreak that has killed 20 people, federal health officials said Thursday.
The match confirms the link between the outbreak and the maker of the steroids, New England Compounding Center of Framingham, Mass. Officials previously said they found fungus in more than 50 unopened vials from the company, but needed more tests to determine the kind of fungus.
