FDA Investigates Another Compounding Pharmacy

Federal regulators have quiet­ly stepped in to inspect another Massachusetts pharmacy similar to New England Compounding Center, the Framingham company blamed for the national fungal meningitis outbreak that sickened more than 660 people and killed 40.
Food and Drug Administration workers recently joined state officials, who have been conducting surprise inspections of compounders, to inspect one pharmacy because regulators determined the company’s actions fell under federal jurisdiction.
