Nationally, 105 cases of meningitis and eight deaths have been linked to the steroid, according to the Star Tribune. The Minnesota Department of Health confirmed three cases of meningitis linked to the faulty steroid- all women in their mid-40's- but no deaths.
Two Minnesota clinics distributed the injections: Medical Advanced Pain Specialists (MAPS) and the Minnesota Surgery Center. The clinics used the contaminated batches from July until late September.
The steroid products came from a Massachusetts pharmacy, the New England Compounding Center, according to the Star Tribune. The pharmacy recalled all of its products last week.
State health officials contacted patients who received the injections over the weekend. Officials advised those who received the tainted batches to seek medical evaluation, according to the Star Tribune.
