Mass. Hospital Association: Errors In FDA List Of Who Got NECC Products

This article is more than 9 years old.

This just in from the Massachusetts Hospital Association:

“As the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) investigations into New England Compounding Center continue, today the FDA issued two lists of hospitals and other care providers that reportedly received products that were shipped from New England Compounding Center (NECC) on or after May 21, 2012.

The Massachusetts Hospital Association (MHA) has been in touch with several hospitals across the state that have reviewed the FDA list and determined that it was inaccurate. In some instances, hospitals on the list report that they have received no products from NECC. Hospitals in other states are also reporting extensive errors on the list. We understand the FDA list was derived from NECC records and were not confirmed with hospitals on the list. We have contacted FDA to inform them that the list has inaccuracies and to request that corrective action be taken.”

The FDA notice that the association refers to, including the list of NECC customers, is here.
