October 12, 2012, Meadville, PA -- As Crawford County accident lawyers who often help people with permanent or long-standing back pain injuries, we've been closely following recent reports of fungal meningitis linked to tainted steroid injections. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, some steroid injections prepared by a Massachusetts speciality pharmacy for the relief of back and neck pain are tainted by fungus and have resulted in 149 spinal meningitis infections in ten different states, including Pennsylvania.
Fortunately for our Crawford County clients, the CDC confirms that none of the tainted medication has been shipped to Meadville area offices. In fact, only two physician offices in Pennsylvania are known to have received shots from the tainted batch: Allegheny Pain Management in Altoona and South Hills Pain and Rehab Associates in Jefferson Hills.
