NEWS: U.S. Government May Have Prevented Meningitis Deaths
Question: Could the government have prevented the Fungal Meningitis outbreak?
Answer: Over 31 deaths have resulted from an atrocious error made by one family owned pharmacy. The New England Compounding Center in Framingham, Massachusetts is responsible for contaminating the steroid shots given to 14,000 innocent individuals, also causing over 400 of them to be sickened with the virus.
There is a definite possibility that the disaster could have been prevented, had the Supreme Court not overturned a law in 2002, which would have given the FDA authority to regulate errors made by pharmacies.
