Steroid Injections from Tennessee Compounding Pharmacy Causing Infections

- by

Washington, DC: The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is working closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Tennessee Board of Pharmacy to investigate reports of seven adverse events associated with steroid injections compounded by Main Street Family Pharmacy, LLC (Main Street) of Newbern, Tenn, a compounding pharmacy. The reports of adverse events are all from patients who received preservative free methylprednisolone acetate (80 mg/mL) by injection.

To date, the FDA has received seven reports. Clinical information about these patients is pending; at least one of these infections appears to be fungal in nature.

An investigation into the exact source of these adverse events is still ongoing, but these cases are associated with a potentially contaminated medication. As part of the ongoing investigation, the FDA will continue to work closely with the CDC and state authorities to thoroughly review the sterile practices at Main Street, the FDA said in a state late Friday.
