St. Luke’s Health System has not received any of the potentially tainted spinal steroid injections made by the New England Compounding Center (NECC). The injections are linked to a recent national outbreak of meningitis.
On Wednesday, October 17, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released a new advisory recommending that all health organizations remove any product purchased from NECC not just spinal steroid injections.
While NECC is not a permanent St. Luke’s vendor, between July and October of this year, St. Luke’s purchased products from the company to offset a shortage in the market. Since learning of these quality issues, St. Luke’s has terminated its relationship with the company.
Prior to the latest FDA recommendations, St. Luke’s has removed all products obtained from NECC. As a precaution, St. Luke’s is now in the process of identifying patients who may have received an NECC product.
At this time, the FDA said that no illnesses have been associated with the products identified in the expanded recall. While we see no indication that any St. Luke’s patients are at risk, we recognize the need to be proactive. Patients who receive a notification and have any questions or concerns should contact their primary care provider.
St. Luke’s will continue to monitor the situation and provid any updates to patients affected by this recall.
