FDA to Congress: Fungal meningitis outbreak could happen again

Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner Dr. Margaret Hamburg testifies Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2012, before the House Energy subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations hearing on the fungal meningitis outbreak. Without better legislation, Hamburg says, more such outbreaks could happen.

Food and Drug Administration officials know little about compounding pharmacies in the U.S., including who all is making drugs and medical supplies, how much they are making and where they are sending it, the agency's commissioner said Thursday.

Senators fault FDA on Ameridose

WASHINGTON -- During the second day of congressional hearings into a fatal meningitis outbreak blamed on a Framingham pharmacy, senators said regulators not only failed to move aggressively against New England Compounding Center, but also a sister company that supplies drugs to thousands of hospitals nationwide. As a result of a problematic 2008 inspection of Ameridose LLC, a large-scale drug compounder in Westborough, Food and Drug Administration investigators recommended that the agency issue a warning letter to the company, according to a report prepared by the staff of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions, which held the hearing.
