Virtua pharmacies have no infected NECC steroid products
An outbreak of fungal meningitis has been reported in several states caused by a tainted steroid product produced by New England Compounding Center (NECC).
Virtua has carefully evaluated its supply of steroid products and can ensure patients that the infected product has not been used during any patient procedures. Virtua pharmacies will obtain steroid products from other sources when needed.
Since news of the initial outbreak, NECC has voluntarily recalled ALL of it products to be certain that no other patients are infected.
