NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The FDA pulled its list of health care facilities that received suspect material from the New England Compound Center (NECC) after it discovered "technical problems." The federal agency said it plans on re-issuing the list after verifying its accuracy.
Earlier Tuesday, the Tennessee Dept. of Health issued its list of 74 health care facilities it said were connected to the lab believed to be the source of the meningitis outbreak that has killed 23 people across 19 states.
The revised list will be returned to this story as soon as it is released.
