NECC Epidural Steroid Recall
In September of 2012, the CDC recalled three lots of preservative-free methylprednilosone acetate from NECC used in epidural steroid treatments to relieve back pain. The recalled epidural steroids were distributed to 76 facilities in 23 states. Some 14,000 people are known to have been injected with one of the contaminated steroids. Following the NECC epidural steroid recall, the company shut down production. NECC ultimately recalled all of its products and lost its operations license on October 6, 2012. The firm is now the subject of a criminal investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice.
How to tell if you’re infected
