"My doctor's office called this afternoon. It seems that I got two of the contaminated shots back in September. Needless to say, I am not a happy camper."
ncwolf08, I hope for your sake you don't develop any problems! I hope they gave you a list of ALL the symptoms so you're acutely aware and seek immediate care should any of them show up!

Let's get rid of all regulation and the FDA - the free market and funerals will sort this mess out.

Compounding - Now with free meningitis!

The company is New England Compounding Center outside of Boston (stated in the article). They received a warning letter about some of the drugs they produced from the FDA in Dec of 2006. Unapproved drugs are a no-no at the FDA. Apparently their web site is locked down. Maybe they should be as well.

dgcreech- The pharmacy mixes different drugs on-site from different manufacturers and then packages it as a blended product. It appears that the source of the contamination is from a practice there at the pharmacy, rather than being from one of the manufacturers. Appears the fungus got in there during the mixing process. Hope that answers your question.
