At least 7 people have died and 57 people have been injured as a result of receiving a drug that was supposed to help them. The drug at issue is methylprednisolone acetate, a steroid, that was manufactured by the New England Compounding Center. It is currently believed that the drug was contaminated with a fungus. Federal health officials are attempting to contact all patients who were injected with this steroid. This contamination could have been detected by simple safety and quality assurance testing.
