Steroid recall affects Southern Illinois

Thousands of patients in Southern Illinois are being notified of problems from a steroid injection after a federal announcement Friday the drug might be contaminated.
Some 2,000 Logan Primary Care patients who received injections of preservative-free methylprednisolone acetate (MPA) in Herrin and West Frankfort between Dec. 6 and April 24 are being notified, clinic officials said at a Friday afternoon news conference.
Logan Primary Care is part of Southern Illinois Medical Services, a wholly owned subsidiary of Southern Illinois Healthcare.
All patients received injections of MPA from a shipment that originated from Main Street Family Pharmacy LLC in Newbern, Tenn.
