Associated with Steroid Injections

[UPDATE 06/07/2013]

FDA has identified bacterial and fungal growth in samples from two unopened vials of preservative-free (PF) methylprednisolone acetate (MPA) 80 mg/mL, 10mL vials form Main Street Family Pharmacy. The microbial growth was seen in samples from two separate lots (batches). Additional samples and lots of PF MPA are still under evaluation, as well as other sterile products produced by Main Street. FDA, in partnership with CDC, is working to identify the exact species of fungus and bacteria observed in the vials. FDA has received reports of adverse events, including skin and soft tissue abscesses.
