MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Health officials have released the names of the 44 health care facilities in Alabama that received products from New England Compounding Center that have not been connected to a meningitis outbreak.
State Health Officer Don Williamson said Thursday patients who had procedures using the products after May 21 are being notified, even though there is no known contamination in the products shipped to Alabama. Locations of the facilities range from Mobile to Florence.
Health officials have identified 19 Alabamians who were treated at facilities in Florida and Tennessee that did receive products linked to the meningitis outbreak. So far, one has died and autopsy results are pending. Five are showing possible symptoms, although one is not related to the products. One has not been contacted, and 12 aren't showing symptoms.
