Suspect steroid sent to 4 Michigan facilities

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- State health officials say a steroid medication suspected of causing a meningitis outbreak was shipped to four facilities in Michigan.

While no cases of the rare kind of meningitis linked to the outbreak in six states have been reported in Michigan, state Department of Community Health spokeswoman Angela Minicuci said Friday MDCH is working with the four clinics to reach out to patients "out of an abundance of caution."

According to Minicuci, the four facilities that received a shipment of the medication involved in the investigation are Michigan Neurosurgical Institute in Grand Blanc, Michigan Pain Specialists in Brighton, Neuromuscular & Rehabilitation in Traverse City and Southeast Michigan Surgical Hospital in Warren.

Nationwide, hundreds, and perhaps thousands, of people who got the shots between July and September could be at risk.
