• Meningitis outbreak: Questions about license

    Updated:

    (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) - The Framingham pharmacy linked to the fungal meningitis outbreak settled a lawsuit alleging it produced a tainted shot that killed a man in 2004, according to the Boston Herald. The 83-year-old man died of a different form of meningitis.

    Meanwhile, a pharmacy in Westborough with ties to the New England Compounding Center has voluntarily shut down for inspections.

    Ameridose is owned by the same people who run the New England Compounding Center. So far, 12 people have died in the fungal meningitis outbreak, 119 others are sick and thousands more are at risk.

    The state is now looking into whether or not NECC was in violation of its license.
